Jim James “Know Til Now”

December 2, 2012 at 2:09 am

Another song that I discovered listening to KCRW.  That doesn't say much for me, though, since that means someone discovered it before me, played it, and then I passed it on like I'm the tastemaker.  But hey, maybe some of you will have never heard this song if not for my little ol blog.  I find comfort in that.  It's all about sharing, people.

I know what I know, and I like what I like.  I don't know much about Jim James other than the fact that he is in another well known band, My Morning Jacket.  I know and like few of their songs, but I wouldn't say I know enough about them or him to call myself a fan.  Never-the-less, I realllllllllly dig this track.  This immediately took me to the first time I heard Katalyst and Steve Spacek's "How 'Bout Us."  There is something about the usage of horn stabs that really speaks to me, and top it with James's tenor vocals and it's a done deal.
