Jim from the Moon:
At times Jim from the Moon plays acoustic tunes about girls, the devil, and similar distractions. They flow in the vein of Loudon Wainwright III and Neil Young, sung with a voice soaked in years of Irish storytelling. Other times he expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with heavy, psychedelic sounds. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears.
Jim From The Moon picked up his guitar and moved out West to the cool breeze and palm trees of Hollywood, California. Over the past year he has put together a powerhouse band of rock and roll destineers chomping at the bit to be seen, heard, and devoured. Their first release is the explosive "Beauty Queens in Skinny Jeans" which sees Jim and company tearing through time with astral guitars and drums like machine guns.
Jim From The Moon has spent this past winter (though you can hardly call it winter with all this sun) recording the follow-up to 2012's psychelectric "Space, Flesh & Woe", which prompted such claims as "you can't get much more original than Jim From The Moon" and "(Space, Flesh & Woe) stretches the boundaries of psychedelic rock." His new EP "Pretty Dope" boasts the same desire to distort and mold the spectrum of rock and roll as he sees fit. This time around, Jim is flanked by the soon-to-be world famous Pat Moley on guitar, who grooves through every tune with focused abandon, and Geoff Haba who puts the world in check with peerless drumming, which births this truth…there's a new band in town, ya heard? and you better shape up…it's Jim From The Moon.
2016 will see Jim From The Moon playing shows all around Los Angeles, so keep an eye out!
Bikes: BIKES is a band... but like a good band:
Brandon - Lead Singer, Guitar, Jack-of-All-Trades, Stupid T-shirt game on fleek.
Steve - DOUBLE Lead Guitar, Piano Virtuoso, Vox (industry speak for background vocals), has fostered 37 dogs (including 22 Weimaraners)
Val - The best female drummer on the planet... and that's on record somewhere, makes the band look cool.
Vince - Bass Guitar, Synth Bass, Vox (industry speak for background vocals), Acts of Vigilante Justice, Books crappy hotels.

Music Connection New Music Critique
of 3 previously released tracks by Jim from the Moon
With just a strident voice and acoustic guitar, "Thanksgiving Day" heralds an aggressive, heartsick busker, possibly with punk rock roots, looking for "the one" girl, and he wears his heart heavy on his sleeve. "Esqueleton" adds subtle effects in the track that buiid to a wild squall of a climax. "To Live To Roam" is where Jim's potential finally blossoms as a full band fills in the blanks, boosts the energy and connects the dots. No question this power strummer would do well to take his bedroom tunes and outfit them for his nimble support trio.

"With his distinct vocals and willingness to explore and push conventional genres with his own unique take, this album stretches the boundaries of psych/rock. This is the 26 year old world traveler's ninth album, he is a young man with an old soul and tales to tell."
- Popa's Tunes
"You can’t get much more original than Jim from the Moon. Earlier this year, the unorthodox indie rocker released a five-track acoustic EP titled 'I’m Going to Steal You'. The thing I liked most about this EP is that Jim stays very unconventional with his lyrics and the over-all direction of his sound. There are no cheesy melodies or predictable phrasing. It is simply a compilation of honesty laid over top of groovy acoustic guitar work.
Jim from the Moon is back from his lunar expeditions with an electric space-rock album that boasts many of the same refreshing qualities, called Space, Flesh and Woe.
This ten-track album is Jim’s ninth (which I found a little surprising considering he is only 26 years old) and explores the areas of psychedelia, rock, and pop. While those who fell in love with I’m Going to Steal You will undoubtedly miss the raw, stripped acoustics that complement Jim’s voice so well, I think listeners will be impressed with the dark, distorted guitars and blatant drum patterns that set up a heavily depressing mood throughout the album. Space, Flesh and Woe, though entirely electric, boasts that same rawness as Jim’s previous EP, and he has an eccentric voice that ties in well with the album’s unusual-sounding instrumentals.
Here’s a taste of Space, Flesh and Woe.
Jilted Lovers by Jim from the Moon
Look for the full album out on October 1st."
"What a delightfully abrasive way to begin the show... That was Jim from the Moon with his "Esqueleton"... and it comes from his distressingly
titled EP "I am going to steal you" ,... Maybe that's deeply romantic, but sounds more like kidnapping to me...
He is apparently embarking on the recording of a folk/space rock debut album... now?... perhaps right now
as you listen to this there is folk/space rock being created... and in a delightful tangent, the wobbly
shimmer of the end of that track reminds me of Radiohead..." - Joe Skrebels, DIY Radio

James Gentry, the Creative Director of Indie College, posted Jim from the Moon's entire EP "I am going to steal you" for everyone to enjoy at:
"The Independent Music Podcast Great independent music from around the world straight to your ear holes."
IMP020: Mega Mega ‘Sode! by Pat Krane
"Thanksgiving Day" is track #20
"The acoustic musings of Jim from the Moon... The track was 'Thanksgiving Day' off of the album 'I am going to steal you' Heard five tracks, they're great...and they were phenomenal... make sure to check them out, buy their stuff...find out more about them, that's for sure"
"It’s always nice to kick back at the computer and just mellow out – take the time to listen to some cool new tunes. Folk-Rock singer, Jim From The Moon, is one particular artist I’ve really enjoyed listening to. Each song off of his latest E.P. I’m Going To Steal You is unique with no real pattern, but a true direction...
At 25, Jim has created some very versatile pieces that are both honest and very refreshing when compared to much of today’s cookie-cutter tunes that all seem to follow the same rules."
JIM FROM THE MOON IS GOING TO STEAL YOU
By Sally Bailey
"Jim From The Moon's bio reads as endearingly as his straight forward no B.S lyrical style. What I like about Jim is that there is not one ounce of wanker about him. We need more of that.
... The first paragraph of Jims Bio is enough to set the scene of a lad with gals on his mind and music in his blood, both of which continue to define his music to this day.
Jim makes no apologies for wanting a "pretty girl" or for having "junky looking hair" and just being a regular twenty five year old. There is something extremely genuine about the stripped back accoustic guitars and vocals that hint at an anguish yet reveal disarmingly simple stories with no corny catch lines or predictable riffage."
