Shotgun Jimmie trades his trademark upbeat downstroke pop aesthetic for a deep dive into some serious stripped-down sincerity. Recorded to cassette and VHS by Saskatoon’s Little Jack Films while Jimmie was on tour, VHS EP features four unreleased gems revealing a more vulnerable and intimate side of Shotgun Jimmie. VHS EP is a solo recording of voice and guitar enhanced with heavy doses of atmospheric tape warble and warm room tone, a vintage sound to perfectly compliment this document of Jimmie’s channeling of lo-fi gurus like Jason Molina and Will Oldham. A companion video of the recording is available for viewing on the Little Jack Films Youtube channel.
