On the heels of last Tuesday's release of the title track to the forthcoming My Morning Jacket album Circuital (Out 5/31 - ATO Records), MMJ released "Octoplasm", a Miles Davis-meets-Grateful Dead freeform jazzercise from way out in leftfield. Completely different from anything the band has released to this point and accompanied with a message revealing that there is plenty more unexpected weirdness to come from this Roll Call series.
Listen to Octoplasm:
“My Morning Jacket would like to welcome all those who join the new MMJ Roll Call fan club into their much talked about and highly controversial “Self-Hypnosis Series” as well. The Self-Hypnosis Series will begin an exploration into the core of each individual heart, mind, body, and soul that joins the Roll Call fan club.
Based on a desire to help each individual fan reach a state of emotional bliss, a new algorithm was recently developed at Removador HQ. It can sense listeners temperature and emotional climate at the time of listening-thru any listening device, be it speakers or headphones, and cater a listening experience truly unique for each listener.
MMJ will carefully handcraft and carve pieces of music that will provide a vehicle for the listener to enter a new gateway of self exploration and understanding based on their current state of mind at the time of each listen. The Self-Hypnosis Series will start with a piece entitled “Octoplasm” which will be available via download immediately upon joining Roll Call. New titles in the Self-Hypnosis series will appear randomly, or on a strict schedule and will be available only to Roll Call members. We hope you are to enjoy!”
