Jim James is probably best known as the frontman of My Morning Jacket, a band that crossed over from the underground to the mainstream by virtue of its haunting yet richly melodic and expansive songs. The success of MMJ has given James the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded artists such as Jay Farrar and Calexico, an act he sang with for the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There. This past February, James released his debut solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God. Fans of his other work will find much to like on the album; in it, James stretches out a little in his songwriting and explores the uneasy relationship between humans and the technology we have so quickly embraced.
