Your Morning Rock/New Music Tuesday – June 10th, 2008 Tuesday, June 10, 2008

It’s not a huge week in new releases, but there are a few that might be worth your time…

New MMJ and more, after the jump…

My Morning Jacket – Evil Urges
I’ll be hopping on eMusic to check this out in the morning, in spite of the middling Pitchfork review (this is becoming a theme, no?). It’s probably my only pickup of the week.

Alanis Morissette – Flavors of Entaglement
I’m not much of a fan of the first single and the early reviews on this one have not been promising. It’s a shame, because I’d like to see her make a comeback to relevancy for some reason. I think I just miss the mid-90s. Looking at you, Live…

Emmylou Harris – All I Intended To Be
Ok, maybe this will be the 2nd album I pick up (although it’ll probably be down the line), as I love Emmylou’s voice. I need to get a new XM receiver so that I can listen to X Country and hear a bit of this sometime.

Jakob Dylan – Seeing Things
Hey look! Rick Rubin, again! I miss the 90s….

And, I hear there is a big fancy hippity hop album release today, too. I’ll leave that for the young man who usually follows me in the afternoon…

Sloan – Parallel Play
HOW DID I MISS THIS?!? Another pick-up Fo’ Sho’. VIVA CANUCK POWER POP!

No love for n.e.r.d.? I don’t love the first single, but “spazz” (its in the Zune commercial) is fantastic. I’ll be picking this up

Dios Mio! I did a piss poor job of skimming the ol release list for today…

Evil Urges is a definite pickup for me; screw the fork.

I love Emmylou so I’ll probably be checking that out at some point.

Have you heard anything from Jakob Dylan’s album? Is it similar to The Wallflowers? I love them far more than I probably should so I’m quite interested in this release.

That N*E*R*D* release should go in some sort of cross-post, a 1520 Morning Avenue Rock or something. But I would certainly recommend that, and…well…I’m going to write something on Tha Carter III later this week after I’ve actually heard the whole retail; I was waiting until today to rip it from the tubes.

Doug, I listened to the Jakob Dylan album this morning via AOL and, while not bad, it bored me and I didn’t make it past five or six songs. It’s just very flat and not interesting. Disappointing, as I think he has better work in him than that.

I got a leaked copy of the MMJ album a few weeks ago, and it is awesome (except for “Highly Suspicious”). I highly recommend.
