James Ready for a Revival with Hey Ma

I plan to provide a review of James’ (yes, best known for “Laid”) new album in the coming weeks.  It will be released on April 7th.  Much as their last studio album, Pleased to Meet You, was in 2001, I expect it will be brilliant.  I also suspect as much after hearing what appears to be studio takes of two new songs, “Whiteboy” and the title track, “Hey Ma.”  A video featuring the later might soon be removed, as it appears it was put together without the knowledge of James or the British charity it aims to bring attention to,  Help for Heroes.  The video brutally captures some of the horror of the Iraqi campaign after five years.  Help for Heroes raises money for British soldiers wounded in current military campaigns.

    You are turning me onto some music/artists I would have never found myself listening to even two weeks ago. Keep tearin’ it up, JT.

    Solid. Look at you getting DMB to listen to all these accents! He’ll be listening to the Kooks in no time!
