My Morning Jacket didn’t only celebrate their latest release, Circuital, by live streaming their entire concert in their hometown of Louisville, Ky., last Tuesday. The guys also appeared on VH1 Storytellers to provide some background on their career thus far while performing a series of tracks, including the extremely moving above version of Z‘s “Dondante.” As frontman Jim James explains, the track is dedicated to the memory of a close friend who apparently took his own life. It’s a sad, though fitting, introduction to “Dondante,” which only seems to sound better every time they play it live. Other performed tracks include “One Big Holiday” and “Golden,” both off It Still Moves.
