The Moment with Brian Koppelman - December 8, 2015 - 58:50

This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to Jim James, the lead singer and songwriter for the band My Morning Jacket. Brian and Jim talk about the band’s latest album, The Waterfall, and the message within many of their songs. Plus, Jim meditates on criticism and its role in the artistic process, how his songs are created over several years in a garden of ideas, and what it feels like, minutes before he steps on the stage, to bring a group of people together around one common cause --- love.Topics mentioned:The Waterfall album“Compound Fracture” by My Morning JacketZ album“Wordless Chorus” by My Morning JacketRPM – A non profit organizationBruce Springsteen’s Harry Chapin TributeE Unibus Pluram: Television and U.S. Fiction by David Foster Wallace“I’m Amazed” by My Morning JacketThe New Basement Tapes (w/ Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Rhiannon Giddens, and Taylor Goldsmith)“Blues Run the Game” by Jackson FrankOne Big Circle: How My Morning Jacket Rebounded With Its Best Album in a Decade by Steven HydenOut of Time album“Me and Honey” by REM"Country Feedback” by REMFranny and Zooey by J.D.
