Nicola Tasler's philosophical and thought provoking assumption that the "Earth is a conductor of acoustical resonance", is substantiated John James & band who provide more than a crust of support for this proposition in their debut album.

The Forecast is a mellow mixture of energy saving instruments, providing a comfortable platform for James' laid back and charming Elliot Smith mingling with James Brown style vocals.
