More Than One James: The Jameses
My faith and excitement in the South Florida indie music scene is regularly renewed as I dig deeper and find solid talent in the tri-county area. I must give WVUM‘s locals only show, Miami Time, full credit for exposing The Jameses to my eardrums. Once I heard their psych-surf anthem Rat People with eerily awesome allusions to Help Me, Rhonda, I was immediately sold. This is the kind of song you play at the peak of a house party when people are obliterated in a good way (and before they’re obliterated in a bad way.) The Jameses are a trio out of West Palm Beach by the names of Jesse, Danny, and Dan. Apparently two of them share ‘James’ as a middle name but it’s top secret which two. Although based on that criterea, they could have also been named “The Dans” but it wouldn’t sound nearly as wonderfully awkward.
