Shotgun Jimmie
The Onlys
Delorean Recordings
At Marshwind Farms near Sackville, New Brunswick, is this guy, Shotgun Jimmie. He made this fine recording, The Onlys, which he’ll play for you November 17 at The Seahorse. Sometimes he sings from loneliness, not in a sad way necessarily---more like when you’re alone with your thoughts. You notice, as he does on “Summersound”, “the smell of the fresh cut summer-summer lawn/all the lupin are in bloom/the perfect mixture of scent and moisture.” The beauty of words, birds, sleep, night, earth’s rotation, late-night calls and souls who join in without wrecking the feeling. It’s all here on this gorgeous record of life at Marshwind Farms.
