This is a studio that has seen a tremendous amount of history -- there's even a special booth that was built for Stevie Nicks. And Tuesday night, My Morning Jacket added another tale to the legend of the Village, playing their new 'Circuital' album live from start to finish for a taping of KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic that will air July 15.
Opening with the swirling 'Victory Dance,' the Louisville rockers showed the full range of the critically acclaimed new album live, from the rocking 'Holding on to Black Metal' and the Beach Boys-flavored 'Outta My System,' to the sweet acoustic vibe of 'Wonderful (The Way I Feel).'
Following 'Movin' Away,' the band dipped into its catalogue for some of the biggest hits, like 'One Big Holiday' and the pop-laced 'Wordless Chorus,' in which frontman Jim James donned a hood and cape that he waved as he sang to the crowd.
Playing the new album in its entirety, the band largely kept the flow seamless, but James did stop to thank KCRW and tell the L.A. audience, "You guys are so lucky to have a station like this." And the fans, who witnessed the full sound and power of MMJ live in such an intimate space, definitely felt as lucky as James thought they should.
