MMJtheWaterfall

My Morning Jacket’s The Waterfall, is out May 4th on ATO Records / Capitol Records. Recorded in Stinson Beach, CA the album is steeped in the spirit of where it was made.

Stinson Beach was so psychedelic and focused. It was almost like we lived on our own little moon out there. It feels like you’re up in the sky. – Jim James

Want to know who is coming up in the next few weeks? Did you miss an episode? Have no fear! Take a look at our Live Lunch archives and upcoming schedule.

On the surface, Murder By Death is a quintet with a wry, ominous name. But behind the geography and moniker is a band of meticulous and literary songwriters matched by a specific brand of brooding, anthem-riding balladry and orchestral indie rock. They’ll perform Friday, Derby Eve, at Headliners with Morning Teleportation and Twin Limb. The show is FREE with a Do502 RSVP until Thursday at midnight!
