My Morning Jacket 

"Evil Urges," by My Morning Jacket, from Evil Urges (ATO):

When My Morning Jacket appeared on Saturday Night Live last May singing about a Peanut-butter pudding surprise, the long-haired rockers in the band appeared to be indulging their inner Prince to orgiastic extremes. Turns out Evil Urges, the Kentucky band's new one, isn't all that kinky — for the most part, the album continues in the rocked-up, Bonnaroo-pleasing vein of previous album Z. Though the jury appears divided on Urges, MMJ is undeniably one of the best live acts in the business, never failing to bring its A game. If you thought Jim James' voice sounded gigantic with plate-reverb attached to it, just wait until you hear it at the Uptown.
