Jim O'Rourke – Insignificance

Insignificance widens the screen of the O’Rourke sound, along the way you'll find a riff or two that one can truly ride. There’s more than one classic invitation for the lead vocalist to sneer and shout over it all - but of course, our Jim prefers instead more to murmur and moan quite melodically, to most sensual effect. There’s a spacious ballad to cool you down, then another one of those sick love songs in the mold of ‘Halfway to a Threeway,’ as well. Cut quickly with a skeleton crew after two years of indecision, ‘Insignificance’ brims with a newfound ‘immaturity’.
