We’re getting closer and closer to the highly anticipated June 10th release of My Morning Jacket’s new album, and if I were any more excited I’d be humping Jim James’ leg. This weekend we learned that the follow-up to 2005’s Z will be titled Evil Urges. In other MMJ news, Current TV will air All Eyes on My Morning Jacket tomorrow at 10PM — it features footage of the band’s performance at Lollapalooza where they were accompanied by the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Let’s start the week off with enough linkage to keep you busy this morning:
- The writers of Across The Universe set their sights on the Rolling Stones
- Eddie and Wolfgang appear on Guitar World’s first-ever Father/Son cover
- We’ve run out of good ones: Look for the Stone Temple Pilots to reunite
- MGMT debuts a terrific video for Time To Pretend
- The New Pornographers stop by World Cafe for a brief performance
- Popdose’s Chart Attack goes all the way back to 1/24/1976
- Read the latest from the PAF (prolific as fuck) Jesse Jarnow
- Neddy runs down the shows of the week in New York City
Finally, I was surprised that Crowded House’s Time On Earth was nowhere to be found on most critic’s Best Of 2007 lists. Time On Earth contains 14 infectious gems brilliantly crafted by Neil Finn. Dw. Dunphy tries to figure out why Crowded House can’t match the success they’ve achieved in Europe and Australia here in the States. I’ve been kissing this album’s ring since July, so don’t blame me.
