A few days ago Jim James released the first single from his up coming record Uniform Distortion which is set to hit the streets June 29th via ATO Records. The track, “Just A Fool” is a showcase of rock’n’roll excellence featuring a catchy fuzzed out guitar lick as the driving force behind the song. Meanwhile, the chorus is unassuming in its ability to never leave your brain.
The song itself is not just a catchy pop jam, it’s also a sonic masterpiece like just about everything Jim James releases. The song has many fuzzed out layers that are all hanging out in the same area, with the single guitar hook and vocals resting on top of all that fuzzy greatness. Jim also adds his personal flavor by telling us to “rock out now” and that’s all I needed to hear.
