My Morning Jacket Live EP

My Morning Jacket Celebrate Record Store Day with Live EP
CelebraciĆ³n De La Ciudad Natal (ATO Records) to be Released
On Record Store Day (April 18) in Independent Retail Stores Only

In honor of record store day (April 18), My Morning Jacket will release a live EP by the name of CelebraciĆ³n De La Ciudad Natal. Below is a note from the band:

My Morning Jacket
hello friends. we are proud to announce and release a lil live ep that was recorded right in our very own hometown of louisville, ky. a few songs were taken from our in-store appearence at our beloved and fabled record haven "ear-x-tacy" and a few of them were taken from our concert at the fabled "waterfront park." see if you can guess which is from which. we are excited to make this a special release that you can only get at your favorite local independent record store, as now more than ever we all need to take the time to celebrate what our favorite local record stores and businesses mean to us - the value of community/human to human non-internet related physical and spiritual contact and supporting the hardworking people in your community who strive everyday to keep it unique and keep it local. we are fortunate in our travels to get to see many wonderful things, but one of the most distressing things is the increasing "normalization" of the world and how all these places are starting to look the same - everywhere you look more and more towns are starting to be filled with the same gigantic corporations, and while some of these huge companies undoubtably provide valuable services, it is so important that we realize that it is our local businesses and people (and natural landscapes, but thats a different letter) that are what make different towns worth coming to... things you can only get in one place, made and sold by people who believe in what they are doing... people who are trying to keep good weirdness alive in this crazy dome. god* bless all of you, and god* bless the world and all that kinda sh*t.

-yer pals, my morning jacket

p.s.- *the word "god*" is used here meaning anything you want it to mean and is a trademark of globo-chem worldwide.

Track listing:

1. Evil Urges
2. Highly Suspicious
3. Gideon
4. Where To Begin
5. Librarian
6. Phone Went West
7. Dondante

*Mixed by Ryan Pickett
*Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound
*Recorded Live in Louisville, KY at Ear-X-Tacy & The Louisville Waterfront

The EP (in both CD and limited edition double 10" vinyl) will be available at finer independent retailers beginning on Record Store Day, April 18.

Hell Yea! The show at the Waterfront last August was amazing! Drove all the way from Wisconsin for it...wish they would release that whole show, but this will easily do for now! Thanks MMJ!

See now, THAT'S how to produce an EP. Despite that we already have most of the songs in one form or another. See my comment on the Oasis "EP."

Could not agree with them more about the "normalization" of towns. The strip mall "WalMartization" that strips all the character away from great towns. MMJ is one of the most talented rock bands around, and are very good live. Did any one see "I'm Not There"? Jim James has a sick cameo singing an unbelievable version of an obscure Dylan song: "Going To Acapulco". Check it out!

these guys are so awesome to the world of music; at least rock and roll. All the naysayers- would you prefer them or someone more mainstream on jambase?
