New Albums from My Morning Jacket and Death Cab for Cutie
Alternative Rock veterans My Morning Jacket and Death Cab for Cutie both released new albums today. Both are solid albums worth a listen from die-hards and casual fans alike. Circuital is a pretty straight forward rock record from Jim James and company that focuses on quality songwriting rather than the hit or miss experimentation of some of their previous records (Evil Urges). Codes and Keys is an excellent follow up to the lackadaisical and relatively mediocre Narrow Stairs, that features the typical melancholy words and delivery of Ben Gibbard, shrouded in an upbeat and poppy matrix.
