My Morning Jacket - Evil Urges

Yes, yes, that's correct. I'm posting an album that hasn't been released yet. You gonna be OK with that? Good. Tough shit. Don't go crying to the RIAA now, ya hear? Go buy this album if you like it.

It's called Evil Urges and it comes out June 10th. It's also outstanding. This band continues to reinvent themselves with every album. If anyone needs any of their earlier stuff, let me know cause I'll totally throw 'em up here (I have no inhibitions whatsoever.)

Somehow they manage to sound like Prince one song, Rush on another and then the Allman Brothers the next... Lotsa love for these guys, hope ya'll enjoy it.

Keep up the good work.

Black Keys - Attack & Release

The Black Keys are a blues rock duo from Akron, reminiscent of Zeppelin or the Black Crowes. In fact, way too reminiscent. But that all changes on this album, thanks to the production duties of Dangermouse. He adds just enough weird to take their songs from "I bet this would sound awesome live" to "this sounds pretty fucking awesome".

"I Got Mine"

J.cole. The next shit hip hop wise (along with the likes of Wale and Cudi but a little less out there) out of NC by way of Queens. An old school ny york flow (think AZ) with a dynamic personality (think Ye) and relatable personality (think Little Brother but a little more agressive). Anything you don't recognize is produced by the kid, because, get this.... hes a classically trained musician. He plays Horns and Strings people. It's J.cole, Aka. Simba With beautiful cover art by yours truely brought to the world by Say Uncle Group. Branding and Design if you need it. Attatched is the cover i liked... the official is on the itunes jump.

Plants and Animals - Parc Avenue

So, finally, a band has attempted to cross the great Hippy/Hipster divide. 3 dudes from Montreal, they strike a good balance between folksy rusticness and edgy indieness. Though you'll hear shades of The Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, and the latest Iron & Wine, the song structures they use are completely original, exploding into psychedelic jams at the end of what seemed to be a 3 minute folk song. Really warm, summery and soothing...perfect for roadtripping.

Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours

The new electro hotness courtesy of Australia. Heavy 80's vibe with some old school Daft Punk tricks thrown in. Prediction: "Hearts On Fire" will be the new "One More Time"
