The Jameses - "5th Dimension"

Though music isn’t as location-driven as it once was — which is, you know, sort of the thematic undercurrent of our Area Codes series — Florida-bred psych rockers the Jameses hold it down for their weird, sun-faded state of Florida. While the video for “5th Dimension” is a literal pastiche of Florida culture, the song matches the tone of the imagery, jilting along to a colorfully odd pulse that’s sort of the musical version of a roller coaster climbing the hill. Check out the video, directed by Weird Days’ Drew Blatman, after the jump.

The “Caribou”/”5th Dimension” 7” is out now on Captured Tracks.

  1. I actually live in Florida and it is in fact as lame here as they’re showing it but man their songs are awesome! Pretty proud that a great band like them came from Florida!
