Jim Blaha makes dystopian animal beat garage rock with his brother Mike in Minneapolis' The Blind Shake. But on his own he makes catchy, if slightly less crazed, rock as Jim And The French Vanilla. After a couple CDR/digital releases, Jim will release his proper solo debut, Afraid Of The House, which will be out February 10 via Dirtnap. We've got the premiere of "Back Home," a nice slab of postpunk pop. You can listen to that below.
