Simple Songs is the third singer-songwriter album by American musician Jim O'Rourke for Drag City. It was released on May 19, 2015, nearly fourteen years after O'Rourke's previous singer-songwriter album Insignificance (2001). O'Rourke uses Drag City for his more conventional work.

Jim O'Rourke's first solo album on Drag City in six years finds his brilliant ear for arrangement and love of dark humor intact. There was a time, from the late 1990s to the mid–2000s or so, when Jim O’Rourke sat at the center of a peculiar intersection of experimental, indie rock, and electronic music. His name on a record was an assurance of a certain level of quality, and he had his name on a great number of them. During these years, he engineered, produced, mixed, and played on records by Smog, Sam Prekop, Faust, John Fahey, Wilco, Stereolab, Tony Conrad, Sonic Youth (of which he was a member), Beth Orton, Superchunk, Phill Niblock, and many more.

Simple Songs ‎(CD, Album). Volume is much too low and when you turn it up, you get more surface noise than music, especially on the quieter parts.

2015 album from the iconic experimental artist. The silence has been broken with Simple Songs - Jim O'Rourke is ready to talk to you again. First, he wants you to know he's not dead-yet. But you're not, either-and really, what have you done lately? Certainly not made your first pop album since 2001-and even if you had, it probably wasn't any good. Meanwhile Simple Songs is more than just a first of anything since whenever! It's an amazing record of musical song e Jim O'Rourke knows what he wants and how to get i. musically,.

It’s most evident on opening track Friends With Benefits, a winding folk jam akin to the best parts of O’Rourke’s 1999 album Eureka, which opens with yet another curveball, husked out from his larynx like a grumpy Warren Zevon, raised from the dead: Nice to see you once again, Been a long time my friend, Since you’ve crossed my. mind at all. It’s like meeting up for a coffee with an old buddy, only to find he’s put salt in your latte.
