My Morning Jacket - Z

The hair masked reverb maestros are back at it again with their "indie" rock balladry, this time adding on more layers of spacious guitar rock. I was completely blown away when I saw them on a cold winter's night few years back at the old Higher Ground. It was raw and it rocked. And now with an appearance in Cameron Crowe's latest, Elizabethtown, portraying a local band rocking through a cover of Lynard Skynyrd's classic Freebird, and the Oct. 4th release of Z, the MMJ train is at full steam. Why MMJ has been labled Indie vs. Rock I just don't know. Their albums have always sat in my collection between the southern rock greats Molly Hatchet and The Outlaws, not GBV and Pavement. Many thanks to My Yellow Country Teeth, here's the leaked album available for your listening pleasure:

My Morning Jacket - Z

I just don't want to hear any "Freebird" yelling at future MMJ shows, but I think it's too late for that.

    Nice, thanks for the link. Like your blog, threw you up on my blogroll. Z is pretty solid...like the spacy stuff.

    There were MANY freebird cat calls when I went to the MMJ show this year in Burlington, VT.

    MMJ are one of the best things going right now. More awesome Southerness unleashed on the world.
