Show Post: In House #1464
Kentucky's My Morning Jacket returns with their fourth album, simply entitled Z, out today. While the band retains much of its longtime influence from artists like Neil Young and the Band, and contemporaries like Mercury Rev and the Magnolia Electric Co., there's undoubtedly something different in the mix this time around. Frontman Jim James' trademark reverb-drenched vocals are perhaps a little less drenched, and find themselves surrounded by keyboard lines and funk beats. The result is an unlikely mix that's difficult to identify with a label. What is certain is that the band isn't afraid to follow their own creative muse, and it appears to have paid off thus far. My Morning Jacket kicks off their fall tour this week in Atlanta with Kathleen Edwards supporting.
In House #1464.
