20 years ago, My Morning Jacket put out their first album, The Tennessee Fire. The 4 childhood friends from Kentucky recorded the entire 16 tracks in a grain silo in Shelbyville. That’s how the reverb-drenched sound that would come to characterize their first two records was born. To celebrate two decades since the record’s release, the band (led by Jim James and Tom Blankenship) put together a 2-disc set: the first contains the 16 original tracks, and the second is made up of alternative takes and previously unpublished songs. The higher fidelity of I Think I’m Going to Hell, recorded in 2000 at the Byton studios in Loosdrecht, Netherlands, as well as the psychedelic bottleneck playing on The Gift – which wasn’t on the original album – offer a previously unseen side of the band. It’s apparent that the songs selected for The Tennessee Fire didn’t entirely reflect the experimental tendencies which would emerge with later albums such as Z in 2005; those tendencies were nonetheless present as an undercurrent. Instead, alt-country would be the word, with acoustic guitars, washy drums and deftly crafted harmonies coming to define their debut effort. The Tennessee Fire: 20th Anniversary Edition is both a celebratory re-edition and a way to highlight the band’s early years before they gained more fame and momentum.

On 2008’s Evil Urges, My Morning Jacket pushed their music to the breaking point. What was supposed to be a musical melting pot -- with funk, Southern rock, country, and neo-psychedelia all mixed in -- wound up coalescing like a mixed plate of genuine hits (“I’m Amazed”) and overcooked duds (“Highly Suspicious”). The album marked a creative milestone for My Morning Jacket, but it also hinted at their inability to reign themselves in, to realize their limits and tailor their experiments accordingly. The guys hit the reset button on Circuital, which sounds like Evil Urges’ older, (slightly) wiser brother. This isn’t a conventional rock album by any means, and My Morning Jacket rarely waste an opportunity to dive down the creative rabbit hole and see what exists on the other side. ‘70s rock epics, trippy pop waltzes, piano ballads, Motown metal fusions, and orchestral folk songs are what they come up with, and the album rarely explores the same sound twice, bouncing between amalgamated genres with purpose and a sly grin. There’s humor here, of course -- “Holdin’ on the Black Metal” combines a children’s choir with funky brass and fuzztone guitars, and Jim James hums the victorious horn riff in “Victory Dance” like he’s doing an impression of “The Final Countdown” -- but there’s no talk of “peanut butter pudding surprise,” and most of the jokes hit their mark. My Morning Jacket are clearly having fun, and they’re learning how to be “out there” without being outlandish. ~ Andrew Leahey

Louisville indie rock institution My Morning Jacket's 2011 album Circuital yielded a single in the form of "Outta My System," a nostalgic look at troubled times growing up. Remixez y Friendz grabs the original, somewhat dreamy version of the tune and pairs it with remixes by Washed Out and TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. Also included is a far jazzier reading of the song credited as "Alternate Universe Version," a Beatlesque B-side "Friends Again," and -- most excitingly -- instrumental versions of the remixes. The instrumental for Washed Out's downtempo remix floats easily like a raft down a river, replacing Jim James' husky vocals with found dialogue samples about theories of consciousness. ~ Fred Thomas
