The new My Morning Jacket album has yet to grow on me. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from listening to their previous releases, it’s that it takes numerous listens to unravel the numerous layers of their music. It takes work and time, but the payoff is worth it.
For those who are impatient, the payoff is instant with this track. I love the 70’s dream-like landscape that MMJ builds up in the first two minutes of the track. And just as you start to get lost in your own thoughts (with the help of the below visualisation), they switch up the rhythm @ 2:30 to turn this track into one of their catchiest till date. This band always manage to keep the music interesting.
