Why See Kevin Morby?
Kevin Morby Tours City Music in 2019
In the mid 2000s Kevin Morby left his native Kansas City for the vibrant streets of Brooklyn, initially making a name for himself as the bassist for noise folk stalwarts Woods and frontman of indie rock outfit The Babies. In 2013, Morby released his first solo album Harlem River, a departing love letter to the Big Apple that preceded a move to the bright lights of Los Angeles, a city that his since shaped the blossoming alternative indie sound of his subsequent albums. The gifted singer songwriter continues to support of his latest release City Music on a mammoth 2019 world tour.
Blending a sense of hopeless optimism and a twilit atmosphere that points towards some of the best song writing of Morby's career, City Music is a captivating compilation that picks up on Harlem River's themes of romanticising the dystopia of big cities and the poetry that exists in even the filthiest of gutter-lined boulevards and back alleys. Subtle and gentle, but never without energy, the album makes for an arresting live show over which Morby presides, conjuring slow-burning musical memories and mesmeric reveries with a laid back drawl and free flowing guitar riffs.
