My Morning Jacket triumphs again with 'Evil Urges'

Kentucky roots rockers My Morning Jacket have managed a winning streak that few others could create in the last 10 years. As MP3s kill the album, MMJ is one of the few rock bands that still make you feel urgency with the beauty beyond just one or two tracks. They went from obscure, college-rock jam band to “America’s Radiohead” to their new role as one of U.S. modern rock’s last great hopes. Mountains of hype are hard to meet, but their latest LP, Evil Urges, is a contender. More organic than 2005’s spaced-out Z, the new collection of songs might be the band’s most varied and experimental output. At the same time, however, it’s also arguably their most consistent album yet. Seek it out. It may be one of the best albums you hear all year.
