New My Morning Jacket Video – “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2″

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.
