Fresh from Bonnaroo, we’re talking with Kentucky rockers My Morning Jacket
The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival always mounts a big line-up in Tennessee. No exception last summer. Arcade Fire. Eminem. Bruce Hornsby. Loretta Lynn. And at the heart of it, the cosmic super-rockers out of Louisville, My Morning Jacket. They’re a fixture on the indie rock circuit.
Hippie shamans, more Radiohead than Doors, says Rolling Stone. Now they’ve taken their act back home to Kentucky.
This hour On Point: we ask My Morning Jacket, can you really go home again?
