My Morning Jacket – Sweatbees

American space cowboys release UK-only EP of early releases

Trending Now

Louisville, Kentucky’s C&W ensemble My Morning Jacket are the latest critical darlings of cosmic country noir, exploring the dusty backroads of a 9/11-damaged America with a fragile space-folk reminiscent of a hillbilly Flaming Lips. Sweatbees is gloomy ’70s FM radio DJ’d by Joy Division and Neil Young. There are echoes of psychedelic pop on “Lowdown”, while the astro reverb of “The Way That He Sings” is pure alt.country desolation. Definitely ones to watch in 2003.
