Dondante & Wordless Chorus - My Morning Jacket

I forget that i have this CD. It's good, but doesn't really grab me that much. Well, ya, it definitely does when i listen to it, but then later i forget. Like a dream.

I guess it falls into the category of BeardCore, as someone tried to educate me on earlier this week. Sure, seems like the spot for it. Nuevo-Folk maybe, or something like that. I think i read somewhere that they got the dreamy reverb sound on their last album by recording inside of an empty grain silo. It worked, there's nothing like it. I was hoping Wikipedia would verify that for me, but they didn't. They did have this little interesting factoid though...
The band's moniker comes from a discarded coat lead singer Jim James found while sifting through the remains of his favorite bar after it burned down. The coat was embroidered with the letters "MMJ" on it.
That's a great band name story. Once again I couldn't just pick one song, so you get two...

Wordless Chorus
Tell Me Spirit
What Has Not Been Done?
I'll Rush Out And Do It.

You had me worried!
So worried, that this would last...
But now I'm learning, learning that this will pass...

Great album. That's interesting about the grain silo, I wonder if it's true. It does have an interesting sound though.
