Conan is my boy. I’ve seen a lot of crappy indie bands on that show and it makes sense sometimes – you get one song, one shot, and now I sound like Eminem.
Jim James and his lovely band My Morning Jacket may just be the very best rock band in America. They have been for the past few years. This song (“One Big Holiday” from LP It Still Moves) is from a while back, about three albums ago. Just make sure you watch it to the end and hear Conan’s reaction. Just think of them as hairy rock aliens, showing us Earthlings that rock and roll is still alive and changed for the better.
Next post I will show you my favourite performance on Letterman. And golly it`s My Morning Jacket again.
