My Morning Jacket, "Hollywood Babylon"

The Misfits cast a long shadow in Louisville, Kentucky – Will Oldham and Slint connections run particularly deep – and the influence even yielded a couple covers compilations under the name Louisville Babylon. John King, who helms a label called Louisville is for Lovers, released the second volume in 2007, and it contains a version of "Hollywood Babylon" by local heroes My Morning Jacket; only 666 copies of the Louisville Babylon double CD exist, and digital files are hard (if not impossible) to find, so this track is a rare treat by default.
