Jim James & Johnny Quaid Launch Online Record Label


Jim James
Whether it's collaborating with his band mates, recording guest vocals, or hand-picking opening acts, My Morning Jacket's Jim James (aka Yim Yames) has always radiated a spirit of camaraderie with his fellow musicians. Now James, along with his cousin and collaborator Johnny Quaid, are launching Removador Recordings and Solutions – an online platform to shine a light on some of the musicians that he admires and would like to share with the world.

The label will also help connect the dots between an ever-growing artistic community that James is a part of, reflecting his eclectic taste and steadfast passion for music.

Below are the details for Removador's first three releases.

Tidwell blends her boundless imagination and voice to create Boys. Her second full-length record, Boys leaps triumphantly from style to style, with her voice being the silken thread that holds the album together. More info here.

February 16The Ravenna ColtSlight Spell
The Ravenna Colt's Slight Spell is a debut album bursting with an impassioned and dreamlike sentiment.

March 16Follow The TrainMercury
Mercury is a nine-song psychedelic journey into musical space. A potent and volatile mixture that pays tribute to the shoe-gazers of the late 1980's and early 1990's, Mercury proves itself to be a compelling attraction to the ears. More info here.

Here is an official statement from the company:

The Removador Recordings and Solutions web venture will offer consumers a rich new way of web-based living; specializing in music purchase, production, and facilitation, as well as problem solving, sports, rehab, recreation, vacation planning, vaccinations, ghosts, and social networking.

Coming this fall, Removador will also debut our much talked about new 3-D printer technology, enabling consumers to purchase food and auto parts online, and simply print them out in the comfort of their own home with our new carbon and silicone based 3-D printer. Imagine ordering a few sprigs of broccoli, or needing a new carburetor, and being able to print them out in edible 3-D - all in the comfort of your own home!
