James The Fifth
-from Los Angeles, CA
-James The Fifth is an LA-based recording artist and producer. Described by Merry-Go-Round Magazine as "chirpy psychedelic rock that toes the line between surrealism and playfulness", James is no stranger to blurring the worlds of music and comedy, with music videos featuring talents such as LA comedian Brent Weinbach and sharing DIY bills with Reggie Watts. Following the release of his 2017 debut EP San Narciso, mixed by Grammy-award winning producer John Congleton (St Vincent, Angel Olsen), James has released several singles with self-directed comedic music videos, including "Blondie", which features a Craigslist-hired professional dancer as an uncanny body double, and "Love Life" in which his guitar-playing hand is inexplicably stabbed by a green room drifter (Tommy Midnight, collaborator of The Garden and Mac DeMarco) moments before taking the stage. That said, there’s nothing to laugh at with his music, which often notes late 70s/early 80s art rock with off kilter, inventive guitar-work and analog synthesizers, recalling Roxy Music, Talking Heads, or Robert Fripp. His funky full-length art-pop psych-rock debut Days Of Wine is out now via Tear Jerk Records (Aus) and Mutation Records (US).
