Today’s Indie: New Life / Jim James

‘babe let’s get one thing clear / there’s much more stardust when you’re near’

New Life is sounding about right right now. I just got a new job, a new apartment, and a new roommate: my TUATI co-contributor and I are no longer just sharing internet real estate. With all this change going on, coming across this sweet song by My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James was just what I needed to take pause and be thankful for what’s good. The track is off of the singer’s solo release, Regions of Light and Sound of God, out this week, and he delivered a great live rendition of it on Jimmy Fallon. The lyrics noted above are some of the best I have come around in some time.

For all you San Francisco folks, James plays the Fillmore on May 12th. #indie/tory

Today’s Indie: Wonderful / My Morning Jacket

‘with the sun on my shoulders / and the wind on my back’

It is spring, and love is in the airwaves. I went to my ┬ádear friends Kirsten and Jon’s wedding on Saturday night, and the whole experience had me overflowing with mushy gushiness long after the I Dos and garter toss and Sunday’s residual vino hangover. This MMJ song has a similar effect, breathing life into my sleepy Monday afternoon. Wonderful. #indie/tory
