Kevin Morby
City Music
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Dead Oceans)
18,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
City Music", das vierte Album von Kevin Morby, ist eineSammlung, die von den Erfahrungen in Amerikas Großstädteninspiriert ist. Oder wie Morby sagt: “It is a mix-tape, a feverdream, a love letter dedicated to those cities that I cannot get ridof, to those cities that are all inside of me." Auf der ersten Single„Come To Me Now" ließ er all diejenigen aufhorchen, die mitMorbys Werk bereits vertraut sind, denn ein Harmoniumkündigte darin den neuen Sound des Songwriters an. „City Music"funktioniert als Gegenstück zu seinem letzten Album „SingingSaw". Diesmal geht es zwar auch um verschiedene Formen derEinsamkeit, allerdings in einem urbanen Umfeld. „Here, LouReed and Patti Smith stare out at the listener," erklärtMorby. “Stretched out on a living room floor they aresomewhere in mid-70s Manhattan, also smoking cigarettes."
Kevin Morby - Harlem River

Harlem River
LP | 2013 | US | Original (Woodsist)
16,99 €*
Release:2013 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Received a 7.0 rating from Pitchfork. "Harlem River marks the solo debut of songwriter Kevin Morby. Known for his work as the singer/guitarist for the Brooklyn band The Babies and bassist for Woods, the Kansas City native and new Los Angeles resident, calls the record “an homage to New York City”, his adopted home for the past five years.Harlem River features eight interweaving tales of tragedy and misfortune; a series of desperate characters playing out their dramas with the city as backdrop. A departure from some of the signature sounds of his better known projects, Morby’s songs glisten with a haunting intimacy and while he maintains that the songs are stories about other people, it’s hard not to feel a piece of him in each one; a half-imagined, half-painfully personal world of lost love, addiction, violence and prayers for the departed. The album was recorded in Los Angeles in February and March of ‘13 with producer Rob Barbato who recorded the Babies second album “Our House on the Hill” and whose guitar and bass work figure prominently on Harlem River.The album also features drummer Justin Sullivan (the Babies) as well as contributions from Will Canzoneri, Tim Presley (White Fence), Dan Iead and Cate Le Bon." - Justin Sullivan
Kevin Morby - Still Life
Kevin Morby
Still Life
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Woodsist)
18,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Received a 7.9 rating from Pitchfork.Still Life is the second solo album from Kevin Morby. The namesake of the record is an art piece by Maynard Monrow entitled “Still Life with the Rejects from the Land of Misfit Toys.” The album’s title has several meanings. On the surface, it refers to Morby’s change in lifestyle that came with moving to Los Angeles from New York in August of 2013. But he also admits that the title is ironic. The songs from Still Life were written during yet another period of tour and travel for Morby, as he spent almost all of 2013 on the road with Woods (with whom Morby parted ways amicably last year), The Babies (who are currently on hiatus) and as a solo artist. The album reflects both this time in transit and the quiet confines of his new home in Montecito Heights. Scenes of performers, audience expectations and the paradoxical confines of a roving individual perpetually caught in a crowd percolate the songs, notably in “The Jester, The Tramp & The Acrobat,” and “Parade.” (Morby calls the latter an elegy of sorts for one of his major influences, Lou Reed.) Violent fates, wrestling with destiny and the nature of death creep into songs like “The Ballad of Arlo Jones,” “Bloodsucker” and “Amen.” Even Morby’s more obvious love songs like “All of My Life,” “Drowning” and “Our Moon” are highly bittersweet; the characters seem to never quite find each other, but perhaps they find themselves. As with Harlem River, Still Life is produced by Rob Barbato (Cass McCombs, Darker My Love) who adds his signature guitar and bass playing to the album. The album was engineered and mixed by Drew Fischer, who also worked on Harlem River and The Babies’ second full-length album Our House on the Hill, and recorded between March and June of 2014 at Barbato and Fischer’s new studio, Comp’ny. Morby is also once again joined by Justin Sullivan (The Babies) on drums and percussion. Sullivan is a fixture in Morby’s live band, which completed a full US tour in January of 2014, supporting Cate Le Bon. Solo artist (and Le Bon guitarist) H. Hawkline handled bass duties for Morby on the tour and contributes bass to three songs on the record that were a live staple. Multi-instrumentalist Will Canzoneri (Le Bon, Cass McCombs, Jessica Pratt), who also performed live with Morby on the tour and who was a contributor on Harlem River, performs piano and organ on the album.
