Solo Album On Vinyl LP From My Morning Jacket Frontman!

With My Morning Jacket on hiatus, frontman Jim James has moved away from his bedroom solo albums and assembled something more reminiscent of a great, '70s rock band. Uniform Distortion is his latest solo adventure and "Just a Fool" is his cowbell-rocking song from the album.

The philosophy and thought that went into making this record was inspired by Jim James' utter fascination with The Last Whole Earth Catalog. If you don't know the publication, suffice it to say that it was a bible for many of us hippie kids bent on a mission to make the planet a better place some 40 and 50 years ago. It was like the Internet for ecology in magazine form. The catalog included a particular image that captured Jim James' imagination – a photograph titled the "Illuminated Man" by Duane Michals. Jim James wanted to use this image for his album and wrote to Duane Michals for permission. After being turned down, James doubled down his efforts and wrote another letter to Michals, which convinced him to allow James to use the photo. The following is an excerpt from that letter.

"My head feels like it is exploding with the amount of information we are forced to consume on a daily basis, and how that information is so DISTORTED there is almost no longer any tangible truth. The name of my new record is UNIFORM DISTORTION because I feel like there is this blanket distortion on society/media and the way we gather our ‘news and important information. More and more of us are feeling lost and looking for new ways out of this distortion and back to the truth…and finding hope in places like the desert where I write this now...finding hope in the land and in the water and in old books offering new ideas and most importantly in each other and love."
