Hamming It Up

HAM1 is the creative outlet for Jim Willingham, an underground institution in the enclaves of his Athens, Georgia community.  His 4th album, Let's Go On And On With HAM1, (out through Orange Twin Records) provides more of the eclecticised narrative pull and psych instrumentation that he has founded for the past few years, evoking a woozier Yo La Tengo in its ethereal meanderings.  'Ghost Loop' is a fairly strong indicator of what Willingham and his partners in crime (which includes member of Elephant Stone) are imparting onto the world.  

Fuzzily folk, or folkily psych?  HAM1 is both.  Listen to the full streamed album here.
