My Morning Jacket Bring Their “Amazed,” “Evil Urges” To SNL

This weekend’s MacGruber-friendly Saturday Night Live episode featured Shia The Motherfucking Beef and musical guest My Morning Jacket. Jim James probably didn’t want to scare America and so he kept “Highly Suspicious” on the sidelines. Instead MMJ catered to the jammier elements of Evil Urges, with southern rocking “I’m Amazed” and the Dead-inflected verses/Allmans-Skynyrd rapid-fire… More »
