Holiday Jam Countdown '09: My Morning Jacket, "Santa Claus is Back in Town"

Posted By on Thu, Dec 3, 2009 at 5:54 PM

(Like last year, A to Z will post a holiday-related MP3 every day of December, leading up to Christmas. If you have any requests, suggestions or files to share, email me.)

Before he shaved off his beard, My Morning Jacket's Jim James certainly resembled Santa Claus -- albeit Mountain Man Santa Claus. So it only makes sense that his band once released an EP full of holiday music. The following tune comes from MMJ's 2002 EP, Does Christmas Fiasco Style. (Buy it here.) The album cover is great; it shows the band attempting to replicate an awkward family photo around a piano. The tune's also solid; it shows the band at the top of its reverb-twang game.
