My Morning Jacket to release live EP for Record Store Day

My Morning Jacket recently announced they’re putting out a fresh new live EP on what’s been dubbed “Record Store Day,” April 18th. The songs were recorded last summer in their hometown of Louisville at the Ear-X-tacy record store and Waterfront Park. Here’s the catch: you have to buy the EP in-store.

Sounds like they’re getting fed up with the commoditization and “sameness” of America, so it will only be available at your local independent record store – no digital downloads, no record store chains, no big box retailers. Fine by me. I’ll be sure to head over to Reckless Records to pick it up. To find your local record shop that will be carrying Celebracion de la Ciudad Natal (and many other special releases in honor of “Record Store Day”), go here.

Here’s the track listing:

1. Evil Urges
2. Highly Suspicious
3. Gideon
4. Where to Begin
5. Librarian
6. Phone Went West
7. Dondante

And here’s a little more about Record Store Day:

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on.
