Z is the fourth studio album by psychedelic rock band My Morning Jacket. The heavy reverb that was a defining characteristic of the band's prior recordings is largely absent. The songs on the album are more focused and shorter compared to the band's previous albums.
The songs on Tennessee Fire (Darla 1999) evoke warm (and somewhat lonely) memories of a gothic country night. Electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica, lap-steel, drums and bass all join his unique (Neil Young meets Wayne Coyne) voice in a huge pool of reverb. At first you wonder if the sound will overtake the songs, but after the first chorus you realize that the beauty of these simple and emotive songs is only enhanced by the addition of this effect, and by the end of the first song, you can't even tell that it's there.

Their spiel is this: My Morning Jacket is not just another ironic, derivative alt-country band. There ain't nothin' trendy about 'em," Darla proclaims. They're the real deal. This is followed by some gibberish about how you'll think you're listening to some lost George Jones or Johnny Cash album, and some further hooey about how My Morning Jacket don't know anything about the "indie" scene, and don't care for what they do know. Sure, their country sound is not typical alt-posturing. And it's true that there's no irony in sight. But listening to The Tennessee Fire, you'll never be convinced that you're hearing anything other than what it is: country- influenced indie rock by four kids from Kentucky. Nothing to be ashamed of.
