Today I’m listening to Fans of Jimmy Century’s new album eSensuals. It’s a 12 track album that is great song after song that will have you dancing, singing, and having a merry time. This is one of those albums that will take you on an adventure. Be prepared for the amazing journey this album will take you on. It’s storytelling very vivid that you feel as if you are on the set of a movie.
The first song “All My Friends Are Ice Queens” WOW! It’s creative, fun, tells a story. As you listen to the song, it takes you to a magical place, as if you are there with the Ice Queens. Fans of Jimmy Century (FOJC), is bringing the fire with this song. It’s the beginning taste of that FOCJ is serving on eSensuals. You get vocal from both Alicia Perrone and Victor James.
Each track showcases the vocal of Alicia Perrone. Her vocal range is amazing. She can sing like an angel and also give this raw, deep from her soul vocals. She doesn’t give you one type of sound. She keeps you listening and tuned into each song on the album. You can get a taste of her giving that raw, edgy, vocals on the track “The Last Summer of Mad Whips”.
“Ghosts of Paradise (Acoustic Choirgang Mix)” the guitar opens the song and seconds later Alicia Perrone voice is beautiful filling the air. The clarity of her voice, it’s hard to explain how amazing she is. This song itself gives me 90’s alternative and a little bit of The Eagles all mixed together to create the greatest of “Ghosts of Paradise (Acoustic Choirgang Mix)”. Amazing acoustic song!!
FOJC is inspired by 70s exotiocawave, alter egos and creating characters it shines through in their music. What’s my favorite song from the eSensuals?? Hands down it is “Ghosts of Paradise (Acoustic Choirgang Mix)”, You have to listen to the album teaser below and get a small taste of what’s Fans of Jimmy Century are bringing to the table.

About Fans of Jimmy Century
The 12-song album is called eSensuals. It features previously released singles “All My Friends Are Ice Queens,” “Best of My Generation (Johnny Rotten),” and “Tigra Girl” and it came out this Friday 10/26.
Originally from Oakland CA, Las Vegas-based Fans of Jimmy Century is an original indiewave, modwave, neo noir duo with trip hop influences and led by vocalist, songwriter, voice actor Alicia Perrone and bassist, songwriter, producer, video director Victor James.
FOJC is inspired by both genre-bending and creating alter egos to match their songs’ vibes and videos, releasing an eclectic and strange range of singles in 2018 & 2017, most evident in “Buddha and Johnny Make An Action Movie,” aka the 70s-inspired Prank music video spoofing buddy films for FOJC’s rockrap electropunk iTunes-charting single “Best of My Generation (Johnny Rotten).” This left-of-field genre bounce was a far cry from the previous single, the wickedly kitsch & vampy villainous swing, Tim Burton-esque “All My Friends Are Ice Queens,” and really showed off their range.
They remained indie until 2013 when they signed to a 2-single deal with Bungalo/Universal Music Group. Their debut song for the label “Va Va Voom to the Moon,” received consistent airplay on Vegas’ commercial station Mix 94.1. They left the deal and continued to self-release in 2015. Soon after their song, “Delicate Fever,” was featured in the Warner Bros. film “Get Hard” with Kevin Hart & Will Ferrell.
Sync placements include Gossip Girl, Forever 21, Finding Nemo 3D, E News Live, Hall Pass, Bad Teacher, Ray Donovan, Law, and Order: SVU, Betsey Johnson XO, Melrose Place, Housewives of NYC and more. “Hot Sahara,” their most popular sync song to date was best known for its prime-time feature on Showtime’s The L Word during the infamous threesome scene, aka the Hot Sahara scene.
In addition to their own releases, Fans of Jimmy Century will collaborate with producer Chris Moon (best known for discovering Prince) on a special project in 2019.
FOJC also produces a popular residency show at The Copa Room on the Las Vegas strip southside called “Fatale Originale.”
