My Morning Jacket chases the spirits of past albums in a five-show stint, | NJ.com

Great article, thanks Sara!

(Via NJ.com)

My Morning Jacket, this is your life.
The latter-day guitar heroes are recapping their entire 15-year career — in public, and in chronological order.
The popular quintet, which will open for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the Izod Center in East Rutherford on Tuesday, has never topped the Billboard charts with a single. Their full-length albums, however, are cherished by legions of adventurous alt-country and modern rock fans. “Evil Urges,” their 2008 album, broke into the Top 10, and listeners who have caught the band’s incendiary performances have bought up its back catalog.

In October, the Louisville rockers will be saying a lengthy thank-you to that following. They will play five not-quite-consecutive nights at Terminal 5 in Manhattan — each one dedicated to a different album. On Oct. 18, they will kick off the series with “The Tennessee Fire,” their debut. The next night, they’ll perform “At Dawn,” its echo-drenched, country-rock follow-up. My Morning Jacket takes a breather on Oct. 20 before plunging into “It Still Moves,” their commercial breakthrough, the next night. Oct. 22 highlights the hard-rocking, critically acclaimed “Z,” and “Evil Urges” gets the spotlight treatment on Oct. 23 to close the series.

Bands rarely do this kind of thing. But when they do, it usually pays aesthetic dividends. Playing an album from front to back in concert is a gutsy move — and a gesture of faith, too. It’s a wager that concertgoers care about more than the radio hits, and won’t head for the exits when the band performs its deep album cuts.

That faith comes easily to My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James. The songwriter and guitarist insists that reports of the rock album’s fall from relevance have been exaggerated.

“Nothing ever dies,” says James, reached by e-mail. “It’s simply reborn onto another plane. The album will live forever in the hearts of those who love the format. There are so many classic albums out there. Unless they find some way to completely wipe ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ or ‘What’s Goin’ On’ from the consciousness of humanity, the album will always endure.”

James’ dedication to the long-player has made his band a favorite among rockers who want to do more than simply listen and run. Each My Morning Jacket release has been distinct and coherent, and guided by forces that aren’t always in the band’s control. And like most enduring rock bands, they’ve never stood still.

“In the studio. I always have a vision of what I think I want,” says James, “but the albums evolve as the guys put their input in, and the spirits have their way. It becomes whatever it wants to become.”

Invariably, it becomes lengthy. The group loves to stretch out. “It Still Moves” included 10 songs that each clocked in at over five minutes. “Run Thru,” the album’s highlight, opens with a slow, aching guitar passage before combusting into a fuzzed-out space jam. Even “Z,” which stripped away the deep echo that the band had become famous for, concludes with the brooding eight-minute “Dondante.” “At Dawn,” the sophomore set, retained the pastoral feel of the debut, but voyaged into the mist for an hour and a quarter.
It all makes fantastic kindling for the band’s explosive live reinterpetations. As My Morning Jacket demonstrated on “Okonokos,” its first live set, even the quiet stuff can spark and catch fire when it’s struck hard enough. During the first nights at Terminal 5, the band will attempt to conjure the fragile spirit of the early recordings, but don’t be surprised if, say, the haunted “They Ran,” a gentle hallucination about a cigarette lighter thief, morphs into a monster.

“We will try to represent the intimate sound of ‘At Dawn’ and ‘Tennessee Fire’ to some extent,” says James, “but even back in the day, there was always a difference between our studio versions and our live versions.”

James points out that the lineup that made the first two albums isn’t the same as the one that currently plays under the My Morning Jacket name. Multi-instrumentalist Carl Broemel and synthesizer player Bo Koster have toughened the band’s approach and expanded its sonic palette. Their presence won’t turn the early material inside out, but it virtually guarantees new discoveries for concertgoers.
“They just bring a different energy and new emotion to the thing, different ghosts,” says the guitarist.

James, Broemel, Koster, bassist “Two Tone” Tommy Blankenship and drummer Patrick Hallahan will use the “Evil Urges” show — teasingly billed as “Evil Urges and Beyond” — to air new material that will be released on their sixth full-length. For the first time, James chose to make the album in his hometown. Staying in Louisville has provided its own comforts, and its own surprises, too.
“It’s been wild,” says the frontman. “We’ve never done one in the ‘Ville before. It’s been great, and it’s given us a different take on the town as well. We’re in a classic gymnasium, recording all live and bonding in the heat and in the absence of technology. No computers, no AC. Just us and God. God and us, I should say.”

At the Izod Center, they’ll be drawing inspiration from another source: a veteran band whose fusion of Southern rock, alternative country and stately Dylanesque folk preceded My Morning Jacket’s alchemy by more than two decades.

“It is a great honor for us,” says James, “and we’re thrilled to open the show for the Heartbreakers. Tom Petty is a treasure and a classic songwriter. Those guys have made so many undeniable records over the years.”

After the dates with the Heartbreakers, the band will stay on the road — but don’t look for My Morning Jacket in Arizona. James and the group have joined the Sound Strike boycott organized by musicians to protest the passage of the Sun Belt state’s SB 1070 immigration law. Bands skipping Arizona have been criticized for abandoning rock listeners in a controversy-scarred state that could probably use a party, but James insists that’s not the point.

“We just want to help make a statement and let people know how important this issue is, and that they need to get involved. We have no intention of hurting our fans in Arizona. We are so grateful to them, and we will find a constructive way to play there again soon — perhaps at a benefit for the cause.”

My Morning Jacket

Where and when: The Izod Center, East Rutherford, Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. (with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers). Terminal 5, 610 W. 56th St., New York, Oct. 18 (with Dungen), Oct. 19 (with Hacienda), Oct. 21 (with Elvis Perkins in Dearland), Oct. 22 (with Holly Miranda) and Oct. 23 (with Everest); all five shows at 7 p.m. How much: $49.50-$125 for Izod Center, call (201) 935-8500 or visit izodcenter.com. $41 in advance, $46 at the door for all Terminal 5 shows; call (212) 582-6600 or visit terminal5nyc.com.

These are the albums that My Morning Jacket will revisit during a five-night stint at Terminal 5 in Manhattan:

1. “The Tennessee Fire” (1999) Reverb-drenched and spooky, songs on “The Tennessee Fire” seemed to rise like wood smoke from the dark Kentucky hills. The band never got any more country than it did here, but even amid all the lap steel and mouth harp, there were clear signs of things to come: the psych-pop “Evelyn Is Not Real,” and epic closer “I Think I’m Going To Hell.” (Darla)

2. “At Dawn” (2001) Any trace of tentativeness in Jim James’ voice vanishes on “At Dawn.” Songs start pushing past the five-minute mark, the guitar solos become more intricate, the band plays harder, the psychedelic excursions get trippier. Essential cut: “If It Smashes Down,” the most sinister amusement park song since Richard and Linda Thompson’s “Wall of Death.” (Darla)

3. “It Still Moves” (2003) The band’s breakthrough set, and still its best-loved. Guitar freaks loved “Mahgeetah” and “Run Thru,” and rightly so — rarely in the sedate ’00s did a six-string titan rip into his solos with comparable verve. But the warm, approachable “One Big Holiday” got the most attention, and nearly gave the band its first radio hit. Somewhere up on a Stratocaster-shaped cloud, Duane Allman was smiling. (Ato)

4. “Z” (2005) Out with the reverb, in with the synthesizers, the space-rock and even a little left-field dub. “Z” sounded like the work of a different band and, in a sense, it was. New members Carl Broemel and Bo Koster pushed the band toward prog, and Ride and Radiohead producer John Leckie brightened the mixes. James even sang differently: “Off the Record” was nearly new-wave in its spikiness. (Ato)

5. “Evil Urges” (2008) As Fleet Foxes won critical accolades and scaled the Billboard charts with a sound not dissimilar to the one My Morning Jacket pioneered at the start of the decade, the James gang returned fire with the funky “Evil Urges,” its most experimental set yet. It’s tempting to say that the band has completed its transformation into a psych-pop unit, but My Morning Jacket is constantly evolving; where it goes next is anybody’s guess. (Ato)

You're never going to believe this, but the new MGMT video is pretty weird!

Jeff Luke Photography - My Morning Jacket - 2010-08-17 - Chicago, IL

 Since starting this blog I've had the opportunity to meet all sorts of people from all sorts of places that do all sorts of things. One of those people from one of those places is the immensely talented photographer Jeff Luke from Minneapolis, MN. We met at the pair of rescheduled My Morning Jacket concerts (after Jim's fall) in Chicago and have kept in touch ever since. His camera seems to be an extension of his body that is capable of capturing the perfect moment in time, every time. I'll stop talking though, check out the shots at his fantastic new website and try to tell me differently.

My Morning Jacket - The Best Band on Planet Earth

Last night was a loud reminder why My Morning Jacket is the best band on this planet. They are a seemingly unstoppable force that simply can't be ignored. Whether it be collaborations with legendary song writers (John Prine most notably), teaming up with legends in the making (Monsters of Folk), working with established rap acts (The Roots), destroying huge festivals, playing with Jack White (Carl Broemel) or lending a hand to Dan Auerbach (Patrick in the Fast Five), you can't throw a stone in the legitimate music world without hitting one of these guys. And yes, while amazing on their own dabbling in various projects they truly are an incredibly fine, tight band that, when together, have a chemistry that science (or anything for that matter) can't explain.

As time lapses in between Jacket concerts I sort of forget what an event a My Morning Jacket concert actually is. It's a trip, it takes you places while standing in one spot. The way they weave genres of music into a seemless blanket of sound is an amazing feat that not many bands, ever, are or have been capable of. Their energy absorbs you the moment they hit the stage. For the time they're up there you're living inside their ever expanding bubble of incredible power.

Ugh. I just want to see more, thinking about not feeling the pulse of their songs played live damn near depresses me.

What the hell am I even writing about at this point?!?


Was truly incredible and maybe the best I've ever seen them. There was an insane amount of force coming from the boys last night. They were on. I mean, they're always on but last night, man o man, they were on and it was intense. As you can see by the set list below, they played one hell of a show. It would be super excellent if they released the new song "Circuital" on a 7 inch to tide us over until the next album. It's a great song to see live, I love Carl's lead guitar, it just grabs you and the guys kill it. I've seen some of these songs 10+ times live and you know what? Not a damn one of them is wearing on me. They consistantly put on the best concert I've ever seen. It's tough to even write about the show because it is difficult to convey the way I feel about it with words. It makes me want to hug you and then look you in the eyes and tell how incredible this all is. My Morning Jacket changes me and it makes me feel like no other music ever has. They are the best band on planet Earth.

My Morning Jacket - San Diego, CA - 2010-08-11 Setlist and Pictures

Nice looking setlist!!!! Cannot wait to hear the new song. Coltrane from the MMJ forum described it like this, thanks Coltrane!:

The new song (?) was awesome. Jim on acoustic starting by himself (with a sprinkle of Bo). Sounded laid back and rolling right along.....and then Carl, Patrick and Tommy burst in and exploded the whole thing!!! Carl thrashed for a bit, then it settled into another few verses.....man, i can't describe it! It felt like a five or six minute song. the lyrics were very interesting too. If it truly was a new song (for a new record), it's a pretty cool direction.

Check out some cool shots from last night here.

Check out a bit of "Dondante" after the setlist.

Pearl Jam - 1993-11-05 - Indio, CA

The famous "shoe show." It sounds like it was pretty friggin' rough, here is some info from Five Horizons.com:

This show, originally planned for the LA area, was problematic with respect to parking and cold temperatures. The unruly crowd was moshing in line during the soundcheck and to PA music! Before PJ started, a roadie sang a hysterical rendition of 'Copa Cabana.' The audience is launching shoes at the stage even before and during the opening acts. In fact, during Eleven's set, a shoe hits Jack Iron's bass drum, he stops the song and says that if he finds out who threw it he would make him pay for the damages (quite pissed). Finally, PJ hits the stage, with the audience behaving outrageously. Prior to 'Deep,' Ed remarks, "Kill your local r*pist, but torture him first, then serve him to your enemy for dinner." Later: "The first guy I met today gave me this book and asked if I wanted to know the secret for living forever." Tossing it into the crowd, he says, "Why the f*ck would I want to live forever?" (TSE edit - At the end of "Alive") During 'Porch,' Ed invites the audience to spit at him. The agitated crowd, continuing to throw stuff onto the stage, leads Ed to comment that "... me and Jeff are going to the front gate and when you exit, we are going to beat the sh*t out of every barefoot person here"  and "... throw a gun so I can shoot you." The band eventually plays from behind their amps so they won't be hit by the flying shoes. This audience was awful. The recording of 'Blood' from this show is released on the 'Daughter' single. 'F*ck Me in the Brain' was released later on the third fan club single (as 'Ramblings'). The guys deserve a medal for playing this long and this well despite the rowdy crowd.

Jimi Hendrix - Red House - Live at the Isle of Wight 1970

This is for all you guitar junkies. I've been in a bit of a Jimi mood lately, that guitar is just too much. This was recorded about 3 week before his death.

Carl Broemel - Enough Video - Lake Fever Sessions

Another Lake Fever sessions video is available from the one and only Carl Broemel. This time around we have the tune "Enough." Check out the other Lake Fever Session audio/video, "Carried Away," here.

Jack White Going Off in NYC

Good ol' Jack White. Apparently he went off on some "hip mother f*ckers" at an invite only Dead Weather show in New York City. In attendance we had Liv Tyler, Shaun White, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Keith Richards daughter Alexandra Richards.

Here's what he said, check out the video too. This is not safe for work guys !NSFW!

My Morning Jacket In The Studio

Joy! Hopefully we get a taste this tour.

(via Rolling Stone)

By  Patrick Doyle
Aug 05, 2010 2:46 PM EDT

Last weekend, Jim James played a stunning acoustic set at the Newport Folk Festival and showed up onstage with both the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and folk legend John Prine. Backstage, the My Morning Jacket frontman told Rolling Stone the band is currently recording the follow-up to 2008's Evil Urges in their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. "We've got five songs done," he says. "We've worked a couple weeks. We're going to do another month. It'll probably be out mid-next year — probably May."

Check out photos from the 2010 Newport Folk Festival.

James says that he is co-producing the album with Tucker Martine, who produced the Decemberists' The Crane Wife and Hazards of Love discs. "We're recording it in a church in Louisville," he says. "We've never made a record in Louisville before."

James calls Evil Urges, which was recorded in Colorado and New York, "the hardest record we've ever made." The new sessions sound more upbeat. "I'm really excited," he says. "It's all live, so the vibe is really, really good, really wholesome. There's something about it. We've done stuff mostly live but then you do some overdubs, some vocals, or whatever. But we're trying to do everything other than maybe strings live. There's just something old and dirty about it."

Since Evil Urges, the band has been busy with various side projects. James released George Harrison tribute EP Tribute To and appeared on the Monsters of Folk. Guitarist Carl Broemel will release his second solo album All Birds Say on August 31st. My Morning Jacket will play all five of their albums during a five-night stand in October at New York's Terminal 5. In late August, they will support Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for three dates in Massachusetts and New Jersey. "I'm looking forward to it," says James. "It'd be awesome if we get to play with him."

New Beck Music and Collaboration with Stephen Malkmus

Beck has a new music being released as early as "the next few weeks" which is exciting but what really caught my attention in the article at Spinner is that he worked on Stephen Malkmus' next disc with him and "Within the first two days we had 90 percent of the album recorded," he said. "We just put it down live. I just talked to Steve, actually. We're going to finish it up when he's done touring."

The next Malkmus disc, cannot wait!

Hey guys, I've been out of the loop for a more than a few days (I was in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) but I'm back and will have some great stuff this week. We didn't have the internet or cell phone service so I'm playing major catch up this morning, stay tuned!
