Default My Morning Jacket

Anyone else heard of this band? I've been digging them lately. I heard about them because they hail from Louisville, KY which just happens to be my hometown. Some of the highlights of the band for me include lead singer Jim James' voice and the band's use of reverb. I've heard that their live shows are pretty much a big happy jam-festival and pretty enjoyable. I picked up their studio record Z and like pretty much all of it. Nothing too complicated in the songwriting or instrumental parts but IMO these guys really have a nice sound going and are totally copacetic. Check them out if you haven't yet.

Oh, and they have their new album Evil Urges out tomorrow, which I definitely plan to listen to.
