Compound Fracture by My Morning Jacket

Posted by | August 19, 2015 | Song Discovery, Uncategorized | No Comments

“Compound Fracture” is the second track on the album and is an example of the band progressing to a point they weren’t at a few albums ago. The song features keyboards in its main riff, which is unusual for a MMJ song where the keyboards are usually used as more of an accent. As the song progresses, bass and guitars pick up more of the weight as the keyboards move to the background a bit. There is plenty of space in the mix, allowing you to easily pick out different instruments, backing vocals, etc. The latter part of the song moves off into more of a jam mode as the keyboard starts coming back in more prominently. Overall, the track is a nice mellow groove that packs a few punches in spots as well.
