Idiot Glee is the solo project of 23 year-old Lexington, Kentucky native James Friley. Although his musical foundations are rooted in his rural southern upbringing, it is apparent that his influences are drawn from a much broader spectrum. Friley looks to Brian Wilson and Fleetwood Mac, along with more avant-garde artists such as Arthur Russell and Scott Walker, as the source for his inspiration. By layering self-recordings over each other, James creates rich, lush harmonies, creating a sound similar to a quartet of voices. With the addition of organs and dubby bass lines, the result is an intricately textured sound, one that is unique and shimmering with brilliance. The debut LP from Idiot Glee will be released on May 16th on Moshi Moshi Records.
