Exactly one year ago last night I shot this video of My Morning Jacket in an amphitheater on the edge of the Everglades. I, who have seen live the likes of Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and of course, Michael Einziger, am here to tell you that Carl Broemel’s guitar solo in this video is the one and only thing that has ever moved me to tears at a concert. It’s fitting I should be remembering it now, since I’ve been doing pretty much nothing but crying for the past week or so, trying to get over that guy I’ve been boring you to death with lately. The one that reminds me so much of Jim James. Can someone please tell me how I’m supposed to resist such a great big hunk of auburn awesomeness?
More from last night’s My Morning Jacket concert in Boca Raton. Here’s an excerpt from Circuital with an awesome guitar solo.
My Morning Jacket - You Wanna Freak Out
I’ve posted this before, but today I finally had a chance to listen to the entire album (Circuital). It’s great, and this song is lovely.
Anyone remember the movie The Point? Do they still make kids watch it in school? Harry Nilsson did the music for it. Listen to My Morning Jacket, then take a look at this clip. I can’t possibly be the first to notice they are beautifully similar, yes?
