Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Jimkata/Marcus Alan Ward/Sammy Slims

When: Sat., March 21, 9 p.m. 2015

A trio of terrific albums has showcased Jimkata’s early growth as a band raising curious eyebrows among the jam scene. They’ve progressively leaned more toward the electronic end of things, and the result is quite enticing. The band’s latest output, a 13-song live album inexplicably titled 10 More Songs!, is a heady set of jams mostly recorded somewhere in upstate New York. The album-opening “Electronic Stone” is a really great way of kicking things off; it’s got the spacey bird calls, the steel drum danceability, the wordless choruses. From there, the band flexes its jamtronica muscles in better form than most other attempts across the scene these days. “Night Shade,” a single of sorts off 2012’s Die Digital, moves from a slowly drifting verse into more upbeat waters as the tune progresses. This being a live album, everything is accented really well by the ambient crowd noise. The raucous cheering is pretty consistent throughout. You can expect the same at tonight’s Beachland show.
