We’re getting awfully close to the long-awaited release of My Morning Jacket’s new album. MMJ played in Houston on Monday night, and Breakfast On Tour was on hand to capture a few of the new tunes. Unsurprisingly, I’m already smitten with the new songs. Especially the gorgeous I’m Amazed.
Let’s see what else is goin’ on this week:
- Stereogum offers scenes from the R&R HOF Induction Ceremony
- Superdee discovers why there were so many Jewish kids on Phish tour
- Rob Harvilla ponders whether he loves or hates Michael McDonald
- Public Enemy will kick off this year’s Pitchfork Festival
- The Van Halen tour is off again, possibly for good this time
- Spinner premieres the Budos Band’s video for Origin of Man
- Levon Helm continues to impress at every show he plays
- Neddy fills us in on the shows of the week
If you couldn’t make it down to Austin for SXSW, at least you can download the music featured at the event. Check out this link for access to 3.5 gigs of free legal music from the showcase artists. Sweet deal!
thanks for finding the MMJ
this was the perfect ending to my day
