Jimmie is different. Gone, is the plucky, comedic pop that was reliably his trademark. In its place: something a little more psychedelic, classic and (gasp!) grown-up.
The sea change may be owing to the influence of one Joel Plaskett, who produced Shotgun Jimmie’s upcoming Field of Trampolines album (it’s out next month). Whatever the cause, we like this new Jimmie.
Of course, this tune may turn out to be an anomaly. We know we’re in for at least one dose of the old shtick on this new record: check out the bison grass vodka-lovin’ “Join the Band,” below.
