Random bands have started to follow me on twitter and tumblr, and it does amazing things for my ego. In this segment, we talk about the bands that have followed me this week.
If you like early nevershoutnever and The Ready Set, you'll like Paul James. James' songs have fun beats and an earnestness that betrays his youth. But youth may not be on his side-- there's a maturity and sense of depth missing from his lyrics that could hurt his chances of going further in the industry. That being said, the energy of the music guarantees that James has a talent worth watching, and would probably be a joy to watch live.
Verdict: With some more experience writing lyrics, Paul James could be putting on some amazing shows worth going to.
