Yim Yames: <em>Tribute To</em>

My Morning Jacket singer adopts silly pseudonym, lionizes George Harrison

moved My Morning Jacket singer Jim James that he recorded six solo covers with just himself, an acoustic guitar, and enough reverb to trap the ghost of the Quiet One for a few measures. In 2009, James got around the releasing the recordings as an EP, Tribute Toit in mountain psychedelica that predicts the rise of Fleet Foxes. The casualness of the performances suggests an attempt to capture the spirit of grief and gratitude while it was still fresh. Tribute To may be minor in James’ catalog, but it proves surprisingly moving in its off-the-cuff run-throughs.
