MMJ: Live at the Palms

My Morning Jacket to Release New Digital EP
Live at the Palms Available on iTunes

My Morning Jacket
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."

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!"

Track listing:
1. Tonight I Want To Celebrate With You
2. Dear Wife
3. Knot Comes Loose
4. From Nashville To Kentucky
5. They Ran
6. Thank You Too

Produced by Jim James
Engineered by Ryan Pickett
Mixed by Rick Kwan

^we get it already, you're trying to learn how to be a troll... how about you hang out over at jambands and read their seven articles a month over and over and over... honestly, you clearly don't like jambase, is this really just troll training for you?

(SURGEON GENERAL WARNING: mothers! lsd+prego=claytribe ) which side effects also includes lack of friends and overall grotesque appearance, which explains extended amount of time on the internet.

yea the graphical interface for is also really simple asshole, it takes prolly at least an hour more for them to put this up bc has every piece of new on the same page. and jambase is just reporting about MMJ which they have to do seeing as how they nearly filled MSG this new year's which is more than i can say about any other jamband. and i don't like MMJ at all, just saying they have to cater to what people in the scene want to hear

Wow MMJ is blowin' up apparently.

I hate to be critical, but shouldn't there be some articles about jazz every once and a while. I know it doesn't = $$$ like MMJ, but for a site that claims to 'represent all types of live music', I just don't see many articles about jazz beyond JFJO and a few others. Sorry to do this on this thread but I have to speak my mind somewhere. No insult to MMJ intended.

BTW who is excited for the upcoming Chick Corea/John McLaughlin tour? I certainly am.

chick corea/john mclaughlin tour?

when? where?

and also liberalsforsavage, jambase said that mmj's performance at msg is already legendary... so it really must have been... these guys don't just pick and choose any ol' info to publish.

oh, and almost forgot, i believe that anyone that cares about upholding the sanctity of music should probably make a t-shirt or something that states: "i am against the soulless ideals of the itunes mega-corp".

this is going on every itunes-related article ever.

Is there a bigger dill on this entire site than the guy from Austin with the USC cheerleaders in his profile pic? Just a rhetorical question. To call MMJ losers and then change your name to mymorningjambase is...well I think we can all tell who the loser is here. They are an incredible band and you are simply upset that you didn't discover them until they blew up. Get over yourself, guy. You are unimportant.

and PS: CoreyBauer is a turd and can't spell!!! I'd have better luck understanding my dog's typing!

We get it, loud and clear, you don't like MMJ. So pick another music site you turd!

Can't wait to hear this EP!!

Let me get this straight... You want Jambase to post MMJ articles more quickly, so that way you can complain about it in a more timlely fashion? Jackass..

you guys are mad cus... I gave you news before jambase.. and I am simply pointing that out? My criticism is just based on the overcoverage of a single band .. and the general shitty journalism that is going on at jambase.

How about if I told you 9/11 happened? You would say I know ... that is all i said about this articale / band.

MMJ is consistenly putting out solid tunes, so jambase reports on them consistently. Ill get this but I fucking hate itunes as well I'd rather just buy a cd or be able to choose where i buy it from. Either way I love the Jacket.
