What do you play on the car stereo when driving two 18-year-old dudes halfway across the country, one of them a metallurgist, the other an alt-rocker?

"Highly Suspicious." (listen here to a live version.)

Over and over.

Muscle car riff. Cartoon vocals. Fun for the whole family. We abandoned the alternating playlists idea and just listened to about 8 My Morning Jacket tunes in a row while bringing it home on I-80.

Good to see the Lou-a-vullians getting some ink in this Sunday's New York Times. Singer Jim James, now living beyond his dreams in Chelsea, explains his stylistic roots:

"The first name Mr. James menitons when discussing his influences is Kermit the Frog. "I remember hearing Kermit sing and then finding out that that was actually a real person singing," he said. "That kind of blew my mind. I was like, 'Whoa, that's actually a real dude.'"

All this in advance of a marathon 3-hour show at Bonnaroo. Stereogum reviews.
