It seems like I can pick any song from any of the last 3-4 My Morning Jacket releases and play it along with a dozen other tunes by various artists, and each time I won't realize I am listening to My Morning Jacket.
I fell in love with "Wordless Chorus," the opening track on their 2005 release "Z." And though I can't say any one of their albums has made a great impression on me as a whole, a number of songs at various times have. When not listening to an MMJ record in its entirety, it seems like I love almost everything. Most recently, it was Jim James' turn on Booker T. Jones' latest that made me swoon and go back into their catalogue.
Here we are again, with another tune popping up at random, and me thinking, "Who is this? Sloan? Jesse Malin?" I truly had no idea.
I'm saying "Uncle." My Morning Jacket is a good band.
