Jade Tree Records (US)
April 2, 2002

Jade Tree Records split EP with Songs:Ohia (no collaboration on any tracks)

    My Morning Jacket
  1. O Is The One That Is Real
  2. How Do You Know
  3. Come Closer
  4. The Year In Review


  5. Translation

"The Year In Review" is simply a very very fast forward version of the three previous tracks.

The Songs:Ohia track is from the Songs:Ohia/Will Oldham/Appendix Out sessions, all three perform on the song.

Available for pre-order at the Jade Tree Records website since late January 2002. Shipping since mid-March 2002. Available in stores from April 2, 2002. Promo copies have been distributed since February 2002 (link shows a blurry picture taken from an eBay auction).

"The third release of Jade Tree's split series pairs for the first time two exemplary storytellers: Louisville, Kentucky's My Morning Jacket and Chicago's Songs: Ohia.

My Morning Jacket's releases for the Darla label have showcased a level of songcraft that is destined to be revered in years to come. Their brand of country-rock tent-revival styled jams are so earnestly played that they make a lasting impression-one that sears the songs deep into the soul of the listener.

As Songs: Ohia, Jason Molina has made a career of producing majestic compositions of an epic nature for the Secretly Canadian label. His contribution to this split however, approaches an even grander scale than Molina has ever attempted previously. A 10-minute, two-part song featuring notable, but unnamable, Drag City records guests, a dark lord doo-wop coda, and Molina's trademark vocals, this is perhaps Molina's most daring and impressive song to date.

As always, both contributions are new and exclusive to this release."

"Chocolate And Ice EP"

  1. Can You See The Hard Helmet On My Head?
  2. Sooner
  3. Cobra
  4. It's Been A Great 3 Or 4 Years (answering machine message from Johnny)
  5. Holy
  6. Sweetheart (new version)

"James has added a new urban sound on a couple of tracks in which he replaces the live drums with beatbox & samples. Clearly Jim James treasures past masters such as Neil Young, Led Zeppelin and Roy Orbison and has little time for his contemporaries, although the likes of Mercury Rev and The Flaming Lips are not too distant from his own sound" (source: Darla Records, February 11, 2002).

"My Morning Jacket, the Louisville, KY outfit that continue to defy categorization, return with a new E.P. entitled "Chocolate and Ice." Equal parts Southern Blues, Americana and dreamy psychaedelica, My Morning Jacket's appeal stems from, among other things, the hauntingly raw vocals of lead singer and guitarist, Jim James. While seeming to simultaneously channel the spirits of both Neil Young and Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne, Jim James leads his musical cohorts along a journey of reverb-drenched melodies, velvet melancholy lyrics, and instrumentation that combines old country swagger with classic pop sentimentality. Live, My Morning Jacket turn the proverbial amp up to 11 and rock so hard that "shards of glass from broken beer bottles thrown against the chickenwire amidst a bar-room brawl only add to the rhythmic mayhem (from a fan website)." Clocking in at over 35 minutes, the new EP is still longer than the latest Weezer album." (source: Badman Recording Co., February 23-March 11, 2002).

US-release available for pre-order through the Badman Recording Co. website since early March 2002. Shipping since mid-March 2002. Available in stores from May 13, 2002.

untitled "It Still Moves" promotional DVD

DVD to promote the "It Still Moves" album. Running time approx. 11 minutes.

"This short film is an intimate portrait of My Morning Jacket, one of America's newest and most acclaimed rock n' roll bands. Since 1999, My Morning Jacket have built a solid following based on their engaging songcraft, restless experimentation and mind-blowing concerts on what has been and endless tour of the world. Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, the band has taken a 'major' leap only in that IT STILL MOVES serves as the first album in My Morning Jacket's three-album, multi-EP catalogue to finally couple the soul of Jim James' songwriting with the craft and energy of their live shows. This film shows the passion, creativity and humility that fuels My Morning Jacket in their recording studio and on the concert stage."

The film is devided in four parts. Each part has one song from the album: "Golden", "Steam Engine", "One Big Holiday", and "Phone Went West". The last track has been filmed live (incomplete) at the Theater of Living Arts, Philadelphia, PA, May 2, 2003, and is the same as on the various artists sampler "ATO Records 54" (see the exclusive tracks on various artists compilations section of this My Morning Jacket discography).
