Jim's Big Ego is a band from Boston
, which I discovered last fall. They opened a show at the Maintenance Shop
for Stuart Davis
, and I really liked their sound. The band is a trio of Jim Infantino
on guitars and vocals (he does most of the songwriting as well), along with Jesse Flack on upright bass and Jesse Vena on drums. Their music tends to be a mix of pop and folk, and is usually VERY intelligent. They seem to have a strong following in the Northeast, especially at colleges.
The only CD I have of Jim's Big Ego is noplace like nowhere
. Some of my favorite songs of theirs include Stress
, Prince Charming
, and She's Dead
. They were also featured on NPR
recently, as they showed the process of creating and recording a new song, Little Miss Communication
More information can be found at their website, www.bigego.com. It includes samples of several of their songs, and if you ever get a chance to see them live, I'd recommend it strongly.
