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:

[mp3]: My Morning Jacket – Gideon


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.

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.

Twin Show | Lou Reed Cover

With the passing of Lou Reed, the touching covers and tributes keep coming in. We saw Arctic Monkeys cover “Walk On The Wild Side” and Neil Young, Elvis Costello, My Morning Jacket, and others, came together to cover The Velvet Underground.

Now we can add Twin Shadow to the list of artists playing tribute to the late, great, Lou Reed. He uploaded a touching cover of Reed’s “Perfect Day.” It’s a simple cover, but does all the job, capturing all the emotion that so many are feeling with Reed’s passing.

Alabama Shakes incredible rise has been one of the best success stories of the last year. It brought them all the way to Westchester, which is actually a bit easier for me to get to than the city. Not many current bands play at the historic theater, as it’s been more reserved for older acts, aside from the likes of My Morning Jacket and Fiona Apple.

Speaking of success stories, it was amazing to see Houndmouth open for the Shakes. It was a perfect bill as both bands came from similar areas and have seen a natural organic rise thanks to good quality music spread with word of mouth. Houndmouth killed it as usual, sounding just right in the theatre, the biggest venue I’ve been able to catch them in yet. I doubt it will be the last time either.

This was my first time catching a real show from Alabama Shakes. Although I did catch a stunning late night set from them at Bonnaroo last year. The band have been touring non-stop since then, and haven’t missed a beat. Brittany sounds as powerful as ever, and the rest of the band seems just as locked in as ever. They played a soulful set that rocked from every angle and pore of the band until they gave it all. With only one official album it’s amazing to not only see them play at such a large theater, but to sell it out. Things aren’t going to get any smaller either. The Alabama Shakes are truly one of the best success stories of the last few years.

Check out some photos of both Alabama Shakes & Houndmouth, posted below.

I saw a lot of great shows in 2012, from all the great shows in NYC during CMJ, from my trip to Bonnaroo, and my duel visits to Chicago for Lollapalooza/Pitchfork. I saw many bands both big in small in a wide variety of venues, and made many good memories along the way.

When it came down to it, these shows were my absolute favorite concert moments of the year:
