My Morning Jacket – Gideon (Live)

Based off of the new Okonokos double CD album, this compilation of wonderful songs by My Morning Jacket is a superb way to discover why this band is quite possibly the best live rock band out today.

The song is called Gideon.  Gideon was a warrior king told in the Book of Judges in the Bible, which stated that God commanded him to raise an army and attack the neighboring Midianites and Amalekites.  Read more about Gideon at Wikipedia.  It’s a fascinating tale, and the song is amazing, especially hearing it live.
