My Morning Jacket – “Love Love Love”

Next month, My Morning Jacket will return with a new self-titled LP, and it’ll be their first new studio album since they released The Waterfall in 2015. Frontman Jim James produced and engineered the album, and the band knocked it out in two recording sessions in Los Angeles. The band already shared the early track “Regularly Scheduled Programming,” and now they’ve also shared the new single “Love Love Love.”

Stream Metallica’s Blacklist Tribute Album Feat. My Morning Jacket, Mac DeMarco, Corey Taylor, & More

A few months ago, Metallica announced that they were planning some elaborate 30th anniversary celebrations for their 1991 self-titled “Black Album” that included a tribute album of covers featuring contributions from 53 different artists. We’ve heard quite a few of them already, from such esteemed names as Weezer, St. Vincent, Jason Isbell, Kamasi Washington, Chris Stapleton, J Balvin, Phoebe Bridgers, Rina Sawayama, and others, and there are still plenty more where that came from.

My Morning Jacket – “Regularly Scheduled Programming”

The six-year wait for a real deal, full-fledged new My Morning Jacket album is about to end. The last time MMJ went through a proper album rollout, it was way back in the spring of 2015 with The Waterfall. Since then, there were solo albums and other projects and tours but also simmering rumors that MMJ might be going on some kind of lengthy hiatus. In 2019, they gathered to play some shows celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album, The Tennessee Fire, and apparently that sparked ins...

Indie had a big year in 2009. As the first decade of the century drew to a close, there was a slew of major releases from the genre's dominant, or very-soon-to-be-dominant, names.
