My sister and my brother-in-law had their first child today! They gave birth to a 6 pound 6 ounce 19 inch long boy. His name is either going to be Hunter or Matthew Louis. I know this is not a baby blog but I am very excited today.

The strings are so beautiful

Bo had to be doing drugs
Touch Me Pt. I
Jim James voice is amazing no matter what comes out of his mouth
Vocals and guitar solo's!
Jim James solo just made me crap
Thank You Too
A goodbye song
Jim James guitar again, I have this vivid image of him bending each note
Bo is really fucking good

Strings are beautiful
Look At You
Pink Floyd in a garage band at prom, such an awesome visual
Guitar solo again
Almost sounds like Oasis could play this song
Smokin' From Shootin'
Touch Me Pt. II
Confirms they have the potential to be our Pink Floyd
The beat and the omni chord riff they always go back to
Patrick is a sick fucking percussionist
Carl is bad ass
Tommy's bass is perfect
BO "Ma Fuckin" Koster
Absolutely 100% like nothing I have ever heard.
I hope this group of people make music for a long fucking time.
After listening to this I can see if people start comparing them to a "US Radiohead." This does not bother me, it is a good thing! That is saying they could do anything and be great at it!
These are my notes. I love this band. I have a newfound appreciation for Mr. Bo Koster.

Okay, got it.
The SXSW version is basically identical, this version does not have the scream at the end however. The studio production sounds fantastic.

Ryan Adams & The Cardinals - These Girls (Rock Version)
I had the good fortune to see Umphrey's Mcgee in basically my backyard Tuesday night. Pre-show I was taking out my garbage and I heard them rehearse Pink Floyd's Fearless off of the album Meddle, this was sweet because I love the Floyd and I love Meddle! They played it through and then talked about what they can do within the song; working at it, critiquing it. These guys are the most amazing group of musicians I have ever seen. Jake Cinninger might be the best guitarist on the planet, he possess' every and any style on the planet and can switch between styles at the drop of a hat. I do not have time to further review but check these guys out man.

Dead Confederate - Selected Songs from The Dead Confederate EP
Thursday, April 3, 2008
“The world today is such a confused place. Things that people think are good values are obviously twisted, but there are other things considered evil that obviously aren’t. There is real evil out there, but “Evil Urges” is about how all of these things that you’ve been told are evil really aren’t, unless they’re actually hurting something or somebody.” -Jim James
There’s an old saying that every human cell in the body is changed over a period of seven years, thus every seven years we become a new person. If this is the case My Morning Jacket has defied this idiom by collectively shedding its skin innumerable times since its inception a decade ago in Louisville, Kentucky.
The past several My Morning Jacket albums have each reflected the passion that the band shares for music of all categories while continuing to nurture their signature aesthetic. Stylistically, Evil Urges is the album that My Morning Jacket has been making for almost ten years. Their previous work has emboldened them with the confidence to continue to grow in ways few artists would be capable of achieving. Admirably, Jim James’ songwriting manages to remain as organic and cohesive as ever, making their musical leaps forward fluid, logical, entertaining, and inspiring.
More than ever before, the band treated the studio itself as a musical instrument for the recording of Evil Urges. Thus co-producers Jim James and Joe Chiccarelli (The Shins, White Stripes) truly collaborated on the band’s most ambitious and convincingly executed album to date.
Although their last album, Okonokos, has been hailed as one of the best live albums of the new millennium, My Morning Jacket is a band that holds no desire to merely replicate their past work. As kinetic and transcendent as their legendary shows are, the band is not attempting to achieve concert realism with the recording of the new album. Within opening track, “Evil Urges,” alone, this focused eclecticism is immediately evident. It is clear that My Morning Jacket have officially outgrown their ‘best live band’ label. Now, Jim James (guitar, vox), Two Tone Tommy (bass), Patrick Hallahan (drums), Carl Broemel (guitar) and Bo Koster (keys) are ready to be the best band, period.
I have a few other choice cuts I will be saving for later posts, for now enjoy My Morning Jacket play How Do You Know and Come Closer PLUS (HOLY FUCKING SHIT!) Jason Molina play Translation.
