2015 release, the seventh album by the Americana heroes. Recorded in Stinson Beach CA, The Waterfall is the band's first release on the Capitol imprint and the follow‐up to their Grammy‐nominated Circuital, which was ranked among 2011's best albums by publications such as Rolling Stone, Paste, MOJO, and Uncut. On The Waterfall, there are moments that reach back to early albums such as 2001's At Dawn and 2003's It Still Moves, the record that gave the band a much broader audience. But the experimentation that marked 2004's Z, 2008's Evil Urges and James' 2013 solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God is clearly in effect. The Waterfall sounds like history and decades colliding, like a record made by fervent music fans in search of that tingle up the spine. Inveterate music geeks will hear echoes of vintage rock and pop as MMJ continues to honor it's influences without aping any of them; The Waterfall sounds like nothing else but also warmly familiar.
