A deliberately frothy take on an under-documented moment in US politics
Album Review: My Morning Jacket - 'Circuital'
A timely sixth album from the stoner-psych quintet
A similar slide into the mainstream for Jim James and co certainly wouldn’t be out of the question – not least because ‘Circuital’, despite stiff competition, is possibly their most impressive work to date. The rolling, euphoric title track makes for a majestic seven-and-a-half minutes, while ‘Holdin On To Black Metal’ sees them fly their playground freak-funk flag, before paying homage to their roots in the tender Southern waltz, ‘Movin Away’. It’s all so much more than simply the soundtrack to a night in with a massive bifter.
