I’ve always thought of “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2″ as the moment Jim James introduced the Omnichord to a disco beat. From now on I will think of it as a great soundtrack to my fantasies of seeing a Where The Wild Things Are feature film. Video producers The Mixtape Club tell Subterranean the classic Maurice Sendak book (and leaked footage of the troubled Spike Jonze-directed film adaptation) were an inspiration point for this new video, and they note a few more on their site (“BBC’s Planet Earth, foliage plucked from the streets of New York City, and the work of Russian animator Yuri Norstein”). Does this mean a Where The Wild Things Are film release is any closer to reality? No. But it’s a cool video.

Nice work, guys. Next stop: Sec Walkin. Evil Urges is out via ATO.

    disco beat rock is the now scene- see Verve’s love is noise
    Missing You, Stones- and the rest
    a band that pull off a 110 BPM with class-
    Hold Steady next?
    I was made for lovin soul asylum

    I love it. My Morning Jacket always surprises in the best possible ways.

    I used to think MMJ was genius, then I heard Fleet Foxes….

    I pressed play on Fleet Foxes and was immediately reminded of MMJ’s genius. You know, like how when you play Robbers on High Street and are reminded of Spoon’s genius. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery right? Not dissing Fleet Foxes. Just saying.

  9. my morning jacket sounds nothing like fleet foxes. and vice versa.

    it will say this on my internet tombstone.

    Fleet Foxes are so much better than MMJ. Its not even close.

  11. Fleet Foxes better than My Morning Jacket???? HAHAHA really??? I mean have you listened to the Fleet Foxes??? They’re whole entire sound is basically a rip off Jim James. But i guess the Fleet Foxes are the “cool ” new thing right now. Wasn’t just a few months ago when every one was in loooove with Band of Horses who where pretty much following My Morning Jacket’s sound?? I’m shocked that MMJ doesn’t get more respect for basically creating it’s own mini-genre that a lot of other bands are coat tale riding to fame.
