Athens, Ga.’s Ham1’s newest album “Let’s Go On and On and On with Ham1” releases on October 31 on Orange Twin Records
Through the last half-decade or so, Jim Willingham’s ever-expanding canon-of-song has become somewhat of an Athens, Georgia institution; in that rough interval, he and his band Ham1 have performed extensively amid the vaunted downtown music scene, toured a good bit, and recorded no fewer than four full-length albums that both reflect and expand upon that locale’s long-noted proclivity toward idiosyncratic narrative and a psychedelicized instrumental approach to fleshing elemental chord changes into full-blooded songs. Ham1’s newest offering, LET’S GO ON AND ON AND ON WITH HAM1 somehow miraculously manages to expand on both of those factors simultaneously, a phenomenon attributable to fresh directions taken in the realms of the studio and in the development of the band’s sonic palette, song-per-song.
