Albany singer-songwriter Jeremy James plays guitar, banjo, mandolin and some organ, too, on his fine album, "Landlocked." James was joined by several other musicians (including Casey J. Chapman and Dave Shaver of Almost Awake) at Blue Sky Recording Studios, and the result is an excellent collection of songs, beginning with "Home," which nimbly takes the blue state/red state tug of war from the political to the personal battlefield. James celebrates at Valentine's in Albany on Sunday night with Almost Awake and the Bookdrop Bees opening the show.
