In yesterday's post I mentioned how I had seen Chelsea Jade join James Duncan as support at The Phoenix Foundation gig back in 2010. As one often finds with support acts at The San Francisco Bath House, the mix can be atrocious, and there were technical problems, but in the case of what was then called "The James Duncan Experience" the mix couldn't hide what were clearly strong songs. Put that together with Chelsea Jade's charisma, and the sullen hipness of James Duncan, the combination hinted at something to watch for. I have since listened to James' first album "Hello-Fi" and enjoyed it, although it takes a few listens. The new album "Vanishing" has yet to be fully digested, and it is definitely a more challenging listen than "Hello-Fi", but James Duncan takes his music seriously it seems, and that being the case, I am going to keep listening till the songs take hold. Today's video is a clever composite edit of new and historical footage which works well with the one of the songs off "Hello-Fi". I am looking forward to seeing some video for material off "Vanishing". I recommend readers go out and look up James Duncan. All James' albums are available at www.jamesduncan.bandcamp.com . Have a listen to "Skyfall", a non-album release also available on the site. A favourite.
