My Morning Jacket’s fifth studio release, Evil Urges, shows us that the dedicated 5-piece’s has hit their “experimental” songwriting stride, fully embracing a sonic shift away from the country-tinged sound of their earlier work. Funky drumming and fuzzed out melodies carry lead singer and songwriter Jim James’ falsetto vocals. Don’t get to used to the groove. Off-the-hip bridges and changes in tempo will keep your ears entertained during the entire 5:12 playing time. Look for their new album Circuital coming soon.
