Carl Broemel – 4th of July

Carl Broemel is best known as the guitarist for My Morning Jacket, a band synonymous with Jim James, the cape-clad hippie Jesus whose lyrics, compositions, and unearthly falsetto have defined the group for almost two decades. On his third solo album, 4th of July, Broemel fittingly asserts his independence from James, diverging from MMJ’s huge, festival-ready rock and opting instead for warm and woodsy folk. With his immense musical talent, he sets off some serious sonic fireworks — mostly in the form of intricate guitar work. Unfortunately, though, the show is over a bit too soon on these eight tracks.
