Over the years MMJ has evolved into one of those bands that lives with you, and evolves. They can be uplifting, hypnotic, joyful, frustrating, sweeping and epic, and sometimes lazy. But they have come to define a sound all their own, largely due to Jim James’ soaring vocals.
Circuital adds another layer to MMJ’s sound. This one makes me want to take a drive or toss some bags with a cold beer in my hand. It’s a winner, and will be a featured addition to my summer soundtrack.
