[new] My Morning Jacket – Circuital

By Will Oliver, April 12th 2011 — with 1 comment

My Morning Jacket have given the title track from new album Circuital, away as a free download. The band is releasing the album on May 31st via ATO Records. It’s their first album in nearly three years.

Fans who were disappointed by the band last album, Evil Urges, should be more content with the sound found on “Circuital”. It’s a seven minute jam that brings the southern psych rock sound of their earlier days back to the forefront. The band recorded the new album live, letting spontaneity take over. It creates a free-spirit groove that allows the song to breeze by. You won’t even realize it’s seven minutes long.

I’m excited about this album. After Z, I expected Evil Urges to be the worthy follow up. Looks like Circuital will take that role.

Pre-Order Circuital now. There are some great options available.

My Morning Jacket Announce New Album: Circuital

By Will Oliver, March 3rd 2011

Yes!, finally. My Morning Jacket have announced that new album, Circuital, will be released this year. The album was recorded in Louisville, and is apparently the most “live record” that the band has done.

The band went back to their roots and turned the gymnasium of a local church into a makeshift studio. They set up in a circle and recorded the basic tracks live to 24-track tape.

Evil Urges wasn’t nearly as bad as people made it out to be. It wasn’t quite what I wanted from after the masterpiece that is Z, but it was still a mighty fine record. I have a feeling Circuital will be a return to form for the band, and everyone will be pleased.

Rolling Stone has a great piece on the album. Be sure to check that out. No release date yet, but hopefully the record will come out by summer. Can’t wait to hear some of these new songs live at Bonnaroo.

Here’s a little bit of “Gideon” to get you ready for the new album:

My Morning Jacket are known for their legendary live shows, and it looks like they can add more impressive live feats to their resume. The band has just announced a 5 day residency at NYC’s Terminal 5 from Oct 18th-Oct 23rd. Each night they will play one of their album’s it it’s entirety. They will start with their debut The Tennessee Fire, and then go chronologically to Evil Urges. After the band’s performance of the whole album they will mix in other cuts from various albums.

This is going to be some serious stuff. My Morning Jacket don’t mess around. I am seriously thinking about going to the show for Z. That album was my best friend back in 2005. I lived off it.

Tickets will go on sale June 18th at noon for individual shows. There is even an option to attend all 5 shows. That is pretty intense.

Recap: Boston Calling Spring 2015

This May marked my second time at Boston Calling, solidifying it along with New York’s Governors Ball and Delaware’s Firefly as one of the premier music festivals in the East Coast. Every spring and fall fans come together in City Hall Plaza for an unforgettable weekend of music. and this May was no different.

Although Friday only featured three acts, Boston Calling proved the old saying quality over quantity still rings true, with Sharon Van Etten, Beck, and Tame Impala teaming up to provide my favorite day of the entire weekend. That’s not to say that Saturday and Sunday didn’t pack quite the punch, as sets from My Morning Jacket, Pixies, St. Vincent, Tenacious D, Run The Jewels were some of the most memorable ones that you’d find all summer.

We had a grand old time at Boston Calling this spring, and hope to return very soon in the immediate future.

Below you can find links to each individual performance recap post, along with highlights of our favorite photos of each of the artist.

Preview: Governors Ball 2015

By Will Oliver, June 5th 2015

Gov Ball

Today, Governors Ball returns to New York City to take over Randall’s Island Park for another edition of the annual festival. It’s hard to believe that it’s June, let alone time for another edition of NYC’s beloved festival.

By now, you should (probably) have a good idea of who you’ll be seeing tomorrow, as well as the rest of the weekend. But if not, I’ve compiled a list of artists who I plan to catch throughout the weekend, if that will help sway your decision.

Governors Ball Single Day
Governors Ball Music Festival announced the 2015 lineup last month, and today they’ve announced the single day lineups for the three days of the festival, set to go down from June 5-7 at Randall’s Islands Park.

We still have to see the set times each day, but at least now you can plan out if you want to go to just one day, or even plan out who you’re going to see each day.

Single days tickets are on presale now, with the regular sale happening Friday noon. 3-day tickets are still on sale.

Boston Calling Announces May 2015 Lineup

By Will Oliver, January 15th 2015

Boston Calling

Last fall I made my first visit to the Boston Calling Music Festival, and had a blast. It’s one of my new favorite festivals, with only two stages you’re able to catch as many acts as possible and do it in a intimate fashion.

The spring edition of the festival has been announced, and it’s a good one. The May lineup features Beck, Pixies, My Morning Jacket, Tenacious D (!), Tame Impala, St. Vincent, TV On The Radio, Run The Jewels, Sharon Van Etten, Mo, Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, Marina and The Diamonds, Vance Joy, Jason Isbell, Gerard Way, Tove Lo, Chet Faker, The Lone Bellow, Jungle, Krill, Grizfolk, DMA’s and The Ballroom Thieves.
