I’m Freezing…Where’s My Morning Jacket??

Well, it seems like after a considerable silence, there has been a lot of My Morning Jacket news so far in 2008. First of all, details were revealed about the bands next album (it has been some time, as Z came out in the Fall of 2005) that is presently being recorded and set to be released on June 10th. To promote the new album Jim and the boys are scheduled to perform June 20th, in New York, at Radio City Music Hall. Pre-sales tickets are already being reserved; public ticket sales began Friday, January 25th.

One of us saw them at The Wiltern early last year (left)and could not have been more impressed. With a decade-plus recording career, the band remains one of our favorite listens from one of the best bands of the first ten years of this new millennium, and their earlier, spooky, rain-soaked plained grain silo, material we return to time and again. Try it out below “Evelyn Is Not Real.” Sure, this isn’t the loudest or most rockin, but it is certainly the most affecting track off of MMJ’s 1999 Darla Records debut, The Tennessee Fire.

Our grab for today will be from the Bonnaroo Music Festival (That Tent) in Manchester, TN on June 16th, 2006. Completely priceless, as it should be it is music after all.
