My Morning Jacket's Jim James will be releasing the previously unreleased second album from Louisville's Mont de Sundua, his pre-MMJ band from the '90s.

Jim James' will host an album release party on May 19 with Dave Givan. They will both be spinning classic soul and funk jams in Louisville at Main St. Lounge.

MONT DE SUNDUA -- Mont de Sundua (Street: 05.22.07)

WOW, what a juicy find -- MONT DE SUNDUA features Jim James of My Morning Jacket with Ben Blandford and Dave Givan of insects.

This Louisville, KY band, formerly known as "Month of Sundays," was founded in 1992. This album was recorded above the Cadillac Studio- Shelbyville, KY in 1998, mixed at the Funeral Home by Kevin Ratterman and Mont de Sundua in 2006. Why did it take almost ten years to release these songs after they were recorded? We don't know, but we're damn glad they got around to releasing it!

Go here for audio samples of Mont de Sunda.

Sounds interesting, especially Space Beast. Like the heaviest of MMJ, very raw. Can't wait to hear the rest!
