Church of Psychedelic Soul: Jim James makes The Fillmore Eternally Even

It was a packed house last night for My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James at The Fillmore Philadelphia. Touring on his new album, Eternally Even, he played many of his inherently spiritual, yet psychedelic, songs accompanied by his unmistakable voice.

James played a 90-minute set plus a 30-minute encore, whipping his hair around during all guitar solos, donned in a suit and sunglasses, as always. The light show accompanying the band had the color spectrum of a Phish show, but with the nuance of a contemporary art installation. ...

Jim James is equal parts funky and woke on Eternally Even

Next Friday, Jim James releases his new LP, Eternally Even. Two Fridays later, he’ll play those songs at The Fillmore. If you can’t wait for either of those things to happen, you’re in luck, because the album’s streaming now over at NPR.

When we last heard from My Morning Jacket in 2015’s The Waterfall, James’ tunes were marked by acoustic guitar and delicate falsetto, but on Eternally Even, the focus has shifted to the low end. With funky drum & bass lines and vocals sung primarily in a ...
