Welcome back Bob Ferdman!

Bob Ferdman Bob's back, this time featuring festival-favorites My Morning Jacket. Bob has previously written for Rolling Stone and JamBands.com.

Hey again. You may recall my first post about the Wilco Winter Residency. And if not, I hope you'll go back and give it a once-over.

Today I'm here to talk a bit about My Morning Jacket.

I once saw these guys open for Wilco. And what a night that was. On record these guys don't sound near as loud or mind blowing as they do on stage. Not to say they're not good on record. It's just that on stage, they are complete beasts.

The clip above is one of my all-time favorites, “One Big Holiday.” There are plenty of great videos of this tune, but this one has a good combination of video and sound quality, plus a nice long jam if that's your thing.

If you haven’t yet been exposed to MMJ, well, just check them out when they come through town (assuming you can score tickets before the inevitable sell-out). There's a reason they've moved up from the festival side stages to headliners the last couple of years — it's because they “melt faces,” so to speak.

Props to CoolLikeMiles for sharing this video.

These guys melt faces for sure. Caught them a couple years ago at Taste of Chicago.
