Post Tropical - Trailer

Biography

On a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border, ‘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, briefly disturbing the birds in the rafters. And like most new ideas, ‘Post Tropical’ is hard to describe. It requires attention and engagement. It ... Read more in Amazon's James Vincent McMorrow Store

Anyone who read my "Best Songs of 2010" article may remember McMorrow's name falling into the 12 spot with "We Don't Eat." Now, nearly a year after its release in the U.K., "Early in the Morning" has finally earned a release in the U.S.

Recorded on his own while living in a cottage on the coast, "Early in the Morning" quickly sets the mood with "If I Had a Boat." Like "We Don't Eat," "If I Had a Boat" starts off quietly, but gradually builds in both vocal strength and instrumentation as the track progresses. Already a pro with them, these crescendos may very well become a trademark of McMorrow further along in his career. Additionally, shades of Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Band of Horses, and Iron & Wine all fill in McMorrow's mixes with a unique beauty that is very much his own despite the influences.

As the album treks forward, McMorrow proves he isn't a one trick pony with tracks like "Sparrow & the Wolf" which adds hints of country and maintains an upbeat tempo throughout. Although his more emotionally captivating tracks are the clear focus, the occasional upbeat flare adds a pleasant contrast to the album.

"We Don't Eat" is an unbelievably beautiful track and is worth the price of the album by itself, but McMorrow's equally sung and whispered lyrics intertwined with a lush musical framework makes for an enjoyable album from beginning to end; creating a very promising debut for the young Irish artist.

Similar Artists: Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver
Track Suggestion: "We Don't Eat"

I had the good fortune to "discover" this wonderful artist at a folk concert outside Dublin earlier this year. His haunting and powerful performance blew me and the audience away. But the riveting live performance was only the appetizer for the main course: McMorrow's magnificant album "Early In The Morning." Think early Neil Young, only better. McMorrow's tenor is haunting and the songs are power and beauty combined. The haunting and stirring "Walk in the Woods," for example, has to be heard to be believed.

This is a beautiful, powerful album by a great artist.

James Vincent McMorrow is awesome. He can create a pretty great debut album that not only has commercial, pop sensibilities but that also weaves in folk elements of acoustic guitar and banjo with some beautiful, piercing vocals reminiscent of Bon Iver. Some notable tracks are "We Don't Eat" and "The Sparrow and the Wolf," that while fairly pop-ey are also upbeat and hopeful. And while comparisons will be drawn between him and Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons and again, Bon Iver, have any of them taken 80s Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" and even Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" and made them into remarkable pieces that are deconstructed enough to make them almost sad and haunting? And while neither of these covers can be found on the album, I think they hint at what is to come for this very talented Irishman. I am looking forward to what is to come.

"Early in the Morning" is a beautiful combination of raw emotion, melancholy notes, and poignant lyrics. Perfect for a cup of coffee, rainy day or road trip. Buy it.

From time to time a music album pops up every now and then and reminds you why you love music. This is that album. The melodies on this album are mesmerizing and intoxicating, each track entrancing you deeper and deeper. It is truly refreshing to hear music with such purpose and conviction. The recording is a little lo-fi but now that I have listened to this over and over I wouldn't have it any other way. Though stylistically different, I can relate this artist closely to Nick Drake in the fact that his vocal range, tone and musical direction is completely his own and imitation is near impossible. I will enjoy hearing more of Mr McMorrows work in the future.

It's in my CD player in my car and though it hold 6 CD's I keep listening to this one again and again and again. There are some parts that are...oh, how do I say? A little hillbilly - Avett Brothers sounding, but the rest of it kicks butt. "We don't eat until your father's at the table..." I am hooked on that one. Just ordered the new CD.

I bought this as a gift for someone after originally downloading the album as an MP3 ( I heard one of the songs featured on Covert Affairs) and falling in love with the lyrics, music, and JVM's voice. Apparently JVM recorded this (and wrote a number of the songs) while holed up in a small house on the wild coast of Western Ireland. I'm now convinced that everyone thinking of making an album like this should go do the same. I love almost all of the songs, but especially "If I Had a Boat" (which was my ringtone for almost two years) and "We Don't Eat." Do yourself a favor and go find some of his live versions of those songs, as well as his live cover of Steve Winwood's "Higher Love." If I could pick one word to describe this CD, it would be "haunting." And if you're Irish, of Irish descent, or have spent any amount of time in Ireland, you'll hear those generations of Irish musical influences and lyrical brilliance in these songs. Buy it.
