The Story

On the simplest level, My Morning Jacket is a five-piece band from Louisville, Kentucky, solidly built around the vocal and songwriting talent of group leader Jim James. Their sound is lonesome, haunting, classic, but shot through with both a rock and a soul sensibility that pays tribute to the band's roots, but is delivered with much less of a sense of place than a matter of heart and soul. That's how you can account for the reggae vibe of "Phone Went West" and the combined Black Sabbath metal stomp and bar-room swing of "Run Thru" without it sounding like a change of tack.
