EW PICK

A double live CD by the indie-psychedelic road hogs may be this year’s least surprising release, but that doesn’t make Okonokos any less satisfying. The first disc leans heavily on My Morning Jacket’s last album, Z, with all concerned reveling in the poppier bent of ”Wordless Chords” and the Kinks- esque ”What a Wonderful Man.” Disc 2 is aimed more at die-hard fans, with a trio of tunes clocking in at about 10 minutes each. This is an impressive representation of the MMJ live experience, sans large field and clouds of suspicious smoke.
