My Morning Jacket News

Stereogum’s favorite Kentucky rockers release the thoroughly awesome Z 10/4, ten days before Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown hits theaters. In the movie (starring Orlando Bloom and Kiki Dunst) MMJ play a local band who sets off the sprinklers when a stage prop catches fire during “Freebird.”

I was excited about it until I watched the trailer. Zzzzz.

Z, however, is no snoozefest. It might just be the best My Morning Jacket album yet. Check out the spacerock jam “Off The Record,” the first tune the band played at last month’s Bonnaroo (before the giraffe joined them). See if you can decode the satanic mumblings at the end!
