Listen of the Week: My Morning Jacket

The Waterfall by My Morning Jacket

Rather like Neil Young (whose influence is deeply rooted within their sound) My Morning Jacket have always embraced two distinct styles – soft, harmony inflected acoustic balladry and epic, ragged guitar psychedelia. But while the Canadian maestro has generally recorded full albums in entirely one style or the other (think Harvest Moon and Ragged Glory for example, although Rust Never Sleeps is the exception that proves the rule) James’s men have typically preferred to offer up a mixture of both in the same collection and The Waterfall by and large follows this tried and tested pattern.
