Carl Broemel Unveils ‘Dark Matter’ Video


As reported, My Morning Jacket guitarist Carl Broemel will release a new solo album entitled Wished Out through Stocks In Asia/Thirty Tigers on September 21. Today, Broemel shared the official video for Wished Out single “Dark Matter.”

Carl recorded the album at his home studio in Nashville, where he laid down many of the instruments himself. He then recruited a number of musical friends to add to the music. Broemel’s MMJ band mates Tom Blankenship and Bo Koster both contributed to Wished Out as did Robbie Crowell (Deer Tick) and Russ Pollard (Everest, Sebadoh)

“I really loved watching Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos TV show, and it sent me down a road of reading a lot of books about space,” Broemel told Guitar World about his new single. “I got kind of fixated on the fact that scientists can sense dark matter and account for it, but they cannot see it or explain it, just like the appearances of the monoliths in 2001 A Space Odyssey. To live in that mental space of knowing some clear lessons from science, and yet having other aspects be completely mysterious, is so appealing to me. I am really hoping that we can act upon current scientific knowledge to improve the whole world, and then we will have plenty of time to experience and enjoy the wonder of it all.”
