My Morning Jacket’s Jim James has launched a new online venture, Removador Recordings and Solutions, with his cousin and bandmate Johnny Quaid. Actually, the launch has been attributed to James’ alter-ego, Yim Yames, who likes his music “cold.”
According to a press release, Removador is “an online platform to shine a light on some of the musicians that he admires and would like to share with the world. The label will also help connect the dots between an ever-growing artistic community that Yames is apart of, reflecting his eclectic taste and steadfast passion for music.”
Below are the details for Removador’s first three releases.
Jan 19 – Cortney Tidwell –“Boys” – Cortney Tidwell blends her boundless imagination and voice to create “Boys.” Her second full-length record, “Boys” leaps triumphantly from style to style, with her voice being the silken thread that holds the album together
February 16 – The Ravenna Colt – “Slight Spell” – The Ravenna Colt’s “Slight Spell” is a debut album bursting with an impassioned and dreamlike sentiment. The band, which is helmed by former My Morning Jacket guitarist Johnny Quaid, combines its myriad influences into a dark, spacious plane, highlighting its cosmic yet truly American style.
March 16 – Follow The Train – “Mercury” – “Mercury” is a nine-song psychedelic journey into musical space. A potent and volatile mixture that pays tribute to the shoe-gazers of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, “Mercury” proves itself to be a compelling attraction to the ears.
Here is an official statement from the company:
