My Morning Jacket

I don't think it's hard to figure out that Off The Record is in-fact named after the My Morning Jacket song of the same title, which featured on the group's stunning 2005 release Z. So in saying that we here all have a little soft-spot for the band, whether we be huge fans or not. Today marks some exciting news, as it's finally been announced (after being rumoured for so many months) that the boys will be heading down to Australia in January to take part in the Big Day Out Festival. With that though, comes even more exciting news that they will also be supporting Neil Young on his sideshows (who has just been announced to headline BDO as well). I couldn't be more happier with this. Both artists are such an obvious pairing, and with a new album, Evil Urges, under MMJ's belt that just throws you around with emotion teasers, flamboyant jams and a signature sound fans have come to love, there's no doubting MMJ are going to be some crowd favorites this coming Summer. Start counting down the days now, this is definitely going to be something special.
