Oh, I've listened to MMJ for some time now. Flew out to Denver two summers ago to see them play with the Black Keys at Red Rocks.
Evil Urges is just inaccessible to me.
And yeah, Evil Urges is not their best effort, thats for sure.
Not arguing over your opinion, but Evil Urges is incredible. I've been a huge fan since At Dawn, and seen 'em multiple times from every tour since It Still moves. The Evil Urges tour is their best so far. perhaps if you're just getting into them Evil Urges might not do it for you? I don't, I love that album

At Dawn is probably my favorite MMJ album. You can't go wrong with Bermuda Highway followed by Honest Man.
At Dawn is also my favorite MMJ song. Yimmy played it as part of the Folksters last fall. There were about four of us going nuts when he played it. Speaking of the Folksters, Yames hair and beard was cut short. I've never seen a MMJ show without the Sammy Hagar mop.
Just picked up Eyelid Movies by Phantogram since I'm going to be seeing them open for The Antlers in early May and then possibly again at Sasquatch. Its fantastic. After Local Natives and Tallest Man its my favorite new discovery. Fans of Massive Attack and The National should check it out.
Not much of a new discovery but I was listening to a couple of Nada Surf albums the other day. I listened to High/Low when it first came out, and while i enjoyed it I wrote them off as Weezer wannabes. Too bad it took me this long to figure out that they are not that at all! Very good albums that show maturity...but Popular is still a great song and I hope they play it live still.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
