My Morning Jacket to Release New Digital EP
Live at the Palms Available on iTunes
Capped off by their already legendary New Year's Eve performance at Madison Square Garden (read our review here), 2008 was truly a momentous year for My Morning Jacket. The quintet released their fifth album: the beautiful, haunting, and mercurial Evil Urges, which has already attained classic status. Never known to rest for too long, the band is ready to unveil another ace up their sleeve: the iTunes exclusive gem, Live at the Palms – or as the band refers to it, "Ryan Pickett Presents, in Association with Pickettmax Films: Candles and Panties '08-the iTunes EP- LIVE in Las Vegas! A Ryan Pickett Production."
|My Morning Jacket|
The EP, which earns its "alternate" (a.k.a. true) name in honor of the band's Front of House engineer Ryan Pickett, includes the previously unreleased "Dear Wife" and
the seldom performed, classic rarity "Tonight I Want To Celebrate With You" – which originally appeared on The Tennessee Fire.
Jim James explains: "The purpose of this EP is to provide the listener with a sensual and deeply personal method for relaxational listening. It is to be enjoyed on a candle-lit bench, a secluded nook, or a sensuous dinner party. Under the careful guidance and watchful eye of Ryan Pickett, we have developed a highly pleasing method of subtle sensation! Who knows how deep thine gentle touch? Please to enjoy this EP!"
