LBX Presents:

James V - (Marrige Records/Gnar Tapes)


James V (jeymz-thuh-fifth) is an LA-based recording artist whose debut EP San Narciso (sahn-nahrk-ee-soh) was first released in December 2016 on Marriage Records and Gnar Tapes. For over a year, James toiled in his asbestos-rampant home studio working on San Narciso, an oblong dreamy stew of psych and funk with elements of Reichian minimalism (which his guitar teacher of 10 years referred to as “Morrissey jizz”). After emailing out his EP link to countless interns across the globe,James found a home in Marriage Records, which has released albums by artists such as Dirty Projectors and tUnE-yArDs. 

In 2017, James enlisted the skills of Grammy award-winning producer John Congleton to remix the album for its re-release, leading LA Record to describe single "Tired of Woman" as a "lurching mutant monster that lives somewhere between no wave and new wave." Live he is joined by Daniel Seman (guitar), Kirby Ditto (guitar, keyboards), Shannon Cain (bass) and Eric Werner (drums). Look for San Narciso out now on Marriage Records/Gnar Tapes at jamesv.bandcamp.com.
