My Morning Jacket, “Circuital”

Free MP3 of the Day

No longer technically an “indie”-rock band, My Morning Jacket is on its way to superstardom, with new album Circuital debuting at #5 on the Billboard charts the week of its release. The album’s title track is a stunner, combining the ethereal hums of singer/guitarist Jim James with the band’s solid, Southern-influenced rhythms.

Hailing from Kentucky, the five-piece band–Carl Broemel (guitar), “Two Tone” Tommy Blankenship (bass), Bo Koster (keyboards) and Patrick Hallahan (drums)–is known for embracing sounds ranging from Americana and psychedelic rock to funk, metal, and reggae. But whether it’s the progressive funk sounds found in 2008’s Evil Urges or the blends of folk and rock on It Still Moves, My Morning Jacket contains a universally appealing sound that nods to Prince, The Who, Neil Young, and others, yet remains completely and refreshingly original.

Aside from the title track (download it below!), highlights on Circuital include the moody, prog-rock number “Victory Dance,” heartfelt ballads “Wonderful” and “Movin’ Away,” and the heavier “Holdin’ On To Black Metal.”

    Lyrics
    So much goin' on these days
    Forget about instinct, it's not what pays
    Pleasure, up and down my smile
    A carton of eggs think, it's all worthwhile
    Tell me spirit, what has not been done?

    Lyrics
    Sorry 'bout the things that I had to say
    And I'll make it up to you right now at the penny arcade
    In an open car wherever you are
    Push yourself too far and it might get hot.
    Well I really don't need the confusion

    Lyrics
    Up and up and up I climb
    When I came up I was so far behind
    My head takes a lickin'
    But my heart keeps on tickin
    Just the same

    Lyrics
    Wakin' up feelin' good and limber
    When the telephone it ring
    Was a bad man from California
    Tellin' of a stone he'd bring
    And of better days

    Lyrics
    He was leading us through the dark.
    He was saying that "love goes on."
    I was wanting some "ice cream."
    He knew exactly what I meant.
    From the drivers seat in the dark
