James Vincent McMorrow

Saturday - 3:00PM

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, James Vincent McMorrow creates music that radiates the formative sounds of a songwriter who suddenly found people giving a damn. On a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border, his album 'Post Tropical' was born – a collection of sounds and ideas brought to life in rooms where the low frequencies of passing freight trains vibrated in the studio. McMorrow’s vision is perhaps most present in the album opener “Cavalier”, a brooding twist on the Slow-Jam, which builds quietly from hushed keys and hand-claps to soaring brass, drums and McMorrow’s idiosyncratic falsetto. McMorrow himself claims that his sound “evokes a style of music without you having a clue what it sounds like. It’s warm and familiar, but there’s something there that’s maybe not quite what you think it is”.
