Jim James was on David Letterman last night, performing an impassioned version of the song “State of the Art (A.E.I.O.U.)” off of his album Regions of Light and Sound of God. Jim James just performed last weekend at the Bonnaroo Festival, and is in the midst of a tour. His appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman actually happens in between festival appearances, Jim James will be at the Firefly Music Festival this weekend. For more Jim James live performance videos, check him out at this year's SXSW Music Conference on our SXSW Video channel, along with performances from other festivals on our Music Festival Video channel.

Spacelab writer Jeff Daily reviewed the album, saying: "James' voice is always ethereal and often swimming in reverb, while those elements don't change much here on his first solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, his melodious voice is more front and center than on his past band efforts. He also plays every instrument on the album, which gives the sound an intimate, "crafted in the studio" vibe as opposed to a loose jammy kinda thing." Check out the full Jim James review.
