One Big Holiday is a My Morning Jacket documentary that was filmed around the time of their Halloween 2010 show in Louisville. It talks about MMJ’s relationship with Louisville and the recording of Circuital. Here’s a quick trailer for it.
Thanks to LFTF for pointing me to this new song from Tallest Man on Earth. It was debuted live in Sweden last week. This sounds like one that’ll be fantastic to hear a fleshed-out version of.
I never thought I’d see a team-up between a members of Teenage Fanclub and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, but I have lived long enough to see just that. I’m still soaking in their album Jonny, but I’ve had enough time to take in the video for “You Was Me,” a beautiful trip through the Welsh countryside.
Jonny will be in Louisville June 17 for those interested. Full tour dates after the break.
I snagged this track over at Pasta Primavera. If you dig it, head over there to download another!
MP3: Native America – Just Add Water
I’ve found that when most people say that a song “sounds like Grizzly Bear” they mean that it sounds like an Ed Droste song. I’d like to get a little more specific here and say that Native America sounds like what I would imagine Grizzly Bear would have sounded like if Daniel Rossen had been involved on Horn of Plenty. It’s rough, there’s some wonderful guitar parts and it’s very relaxing.
OK, fine. This is just all-around vinyl day now. Here’s your alert that Portugal. The Man have put their new album In the Mountain In the Cloud up for preorder. All the vinyl copies come on white vinyl and there’s a lot of interesting limited-edition stuff for order in the more expensive packages.
OK, since I’m apparently doing nerdy vinyl news today, this should be of interest to a lot of you.
Battles are putting out a new 12″ for their single “Ice Cream” that comes in three different flavors. Each flavor, chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry, comes with vinyl in that corresponding color. One thousand of each are available.

Unfortunately I’ll be out of town for this one, but it’s a show I wanted to alert you guys to!
