Rolling Stone's Brian Hiatt caught up with the guys from My Morning Jacket backstage at their show at the Palace Theatre in Louisville, Kentucky to chat about the making of their excellent new album Circuital. In addition to explaining the long gestation process for their lovely ballad "Wonderful," frontman Jim James reveals how a compilation of obscure pop music from Thailand inspired "Holdin' On to Black Metal," one of the record's most adventurous tracks.
