Sure we’re all super stoked about the Ear-X-Tacy instore that’s getting release, but Pitchfork sez today that, Mr. James has lent his talents (along with Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore) to I Love Mountains – who are against mountaintop removal. If you haven’t been to that site, give it a look see. James is also lined up to help Preservation Hall in New Orleans and to play alongside Sir Paul McCartney and Eddie Vedder at a befit for David Lynch’s foundation, which I’m assumming isn’t about reattaching ears or benefits for screenwriters with non-linear plot structure. That show goes down April 4 in NYC (Hey! Cory, send us a postcard!) at Radio City Music hall. And, sorry gorilla vs. bear for totally ripping off your stellar photo.
