My Morning Jacket – Evil Urges
With My Morning Jacket’s last album Z, they showed that they were a band willing take their music in many different directions. On Evil Urges they follow up on that notion by offering an even more eclectic array of songs, and solidify themselves as one of the most interesting bands around right now.
The album’s title track starts off with My Morning Jacket mixing a variey of genres before bursting into a Southern Rock-style breakdown that shows the band’s ability to experiment while still rocking out. The strangest track on the album (in a good way) is definitely “Highly Suspicious” which combines hard rock with funk, while Jim James takes his signature falsetto to new heights. My Morning Jacket still also prove that they can create more pop oriented material with “I’m Amazed” and the 60’s pop-sounding “Two Halves”.
Evil Urges also has it’s share of more downbeat country oriented tunes with “Sec Walkin” and “Look at You”, both of which are complemented by guitarist Carl Broemel’s delicate pedal steel guitar playing. The album then ends with “Smokin from Shootin” and “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2”, the first of which builds from a pulsating bass line to a triumphant climax of guitars and thunderous drums before fading into a into the electronic-sounding “Touch Me Pt. 2”, which goes from a driving keyboard part before exploding into a wave of vocal harmonies.
My Morning Jacket really throws out as many different ideas as they can on Evil Urges, and all of it works quite well. It’s pretty amazing to see a band as fearless as My Morning Jacket in this day and age that can still make rock and roll seem so fresh and exciting.
Favorite Tracks: “Highly Suspicous”, “Aluminum Park”, “Smokin From Shootin'”
