Shotgun Jimmie – Everything, Everything

Shotgun Jimmie - Everything Everything
Holy crap! I knew Shotgun Jimmie‘s new album, Everything, Everything, was great, but I had no idea if it would be any good live. He killed it at the Biltmore over the weekend, performing a great set that had him playing drums with his feet and guitar with his hands. On one memorable tune, he played guitar with one hand, hammering onto the fretboard while playing the ride with his free arm.

Everything, Everything is below. This one is a lock for my upcoming Polaris ballot.

Okay, if I’m going to do this streaming media thing, I’m going to do it right. I just started my own Soundcloud account, where I’ll upload songs that I’m offering as free MP3s. So you can download this one (just click on the little arrow if you’re not already familiar), or you can just stream it you are impatient or have fears about commitment.

Below is Shotgun Jimmie’s “Late Last Year.” If you’ve never listened to this Sackville, NB-based singer before, then don’t be fooled by his outlaw country singer name. This one is an upbeat, bass-heavy pop rocker that sounds a bit like Sloan.

This track comes from his new record, Transistor Sister, which drops tomorrow. Go to Exclaim! to read my album announcement.
