"Yellow House" by Jim Nothing

Well, we did think that the frontman of Christchurch's Jim Nothing looked familiar. Our research (yes, we actually do that from time to time) indicates that he is James Sullivan, late of one of our favorite New Zealand janglers the Salad Boys. It seems he adopted the Jim Nothing moniker for some self recordings about eight years ago, but more recently gathered some talented friends and created an album. Titled In The Marigolds, the LP is out September 15 via Melted Ice Cream (NZ) and Meritorio (EU). The first single is the deliciously chugging, shaggy and slightly psychedelic lo-fi wonder "Yellow House". One listen sold us on the song and the album.

James sings and plays the guitar. Anita Clark sings and plays the violin. Brian Feary plays the drums. Of one thing we are certain: Jim Nothing is not nothing.
