About




James Thomer is an LA-based musician, producer, writer, director, audiovisual artist and sometimes comedian. He writes and performs in his solo project and band “James The Fifth”, infusing his off kilter psych pop sensibilities with self-directed and self-written music videos that fall somewhere in between Weird Al and David Lynch - described by Merry-Go-Round Magazine as "toeing the line between surrealism and playfulness".

Thomer is no stranger to blurring the worlds of music and comedy, with music videos featuring talents such as LA comedian Brent Weinbach and the viral “Austin Powers Impersonator”, while sharing DIY bills with Reggie Watts. In James The Fifth, music videos are never just music videos... they’re an opportunity to indulge in his playful and goofy comedic tendencies -- like in "Blondie", which features a Craigslist-hired professional dancer as an uncanny body double, or "Love Life" in which his guitar-playing hand is inexplicably stabbed by a green room drifter moments before taking the stage.  

That said, there’s nothing to laugh at with his music, which often notes late 70s/early 80s art rock with frenetic, inventive guitar-work and analog synthesizers, recalling Roxy Music, Talking Heads, or Robert Fripp. His funky full-length art-pop psych-rock debut Days Of Wine is out now on Tearjerk Records (Aus) and Mutation Records (US), following the release of his 2017 debut EP San Narciso, mixed with Grammy-award winning producer John Congleton (St Vincent, Angel Olsen).
