Recorded everywhere between Jim’s Frankfurt home and the showroom of local music store “North Star” is a stunning collection of sounds, moods and poetry. Equipped with the typical charme and of a DIY recording project the soundscape is eclectic. You can hear the fun it must have been recording in almost every second of “North Star”, which despite pathos laden imagery never forgets to transport funny comments on love and life.
“How Do You Love Somebody, you’re having sex with?” Jim Reed asks in one of the songs. It’s these kind of questions that make “North Star” great. Observations so close to the human experience put into into songs, delivered in ways more questions than answer.
