#240: My Morning Jacket, “The Waterfall II”

Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.

The upside of not having concerts to go to is the fact that we have even more time to listen to new music than before. There are 32 songs in our playlist this week, but that’s only because we try to keep it below two hours. And on the spotlight this time around is My Morning Jacket’s surprise release of The Waterfall II, the second set of songs coming from the same session that gave us one of the best rock albums of the past decade. This would be the time for me to beg Jim James and the guys to come over to Europe, but it looks that won’t happen any time soon.
