Song of the day is a daily feature highlighting a specific track that might be badass, catchy, mellow, or poppy. As long as it stands out for some reason it’s fair game.
My Morning Jacket – “First Light”
Depending on the day, My Morning Jacket is probably my favorite band. I started with their live album Okonokos and initially it didn’t stick. Something made me keep coming back and by the time Evil Urges came out I was hooked. “First Light” is from Circuital, which followed Evil Urges, and is a good representation of the band. It has a deep groove which builds as the some goes on, summed up with a mammoth guitar solo. When I listen to this song I picture it blasting out of the radio in the ’70s between Steely Dan and “Ramble On.”
