I have Chosen the new offering from James Vincent McMorrow; Tropical.
So what should you know as you first listen to this album. .. erm he’s from Ireland? … that’s all I really know about him other than I saw him on Jools Holland in 2011 and have had him in my life since.
His latest offering has grown on me more and more with each listen. I must say that you may need to be patient and gives this a few goes.. but I have to warn you it starts getting really easy to get lost in.
It’s hard to pin-point who os what he sounds like. There are elements of Bon Iver, perfume Genius and perhaps Antony and The Johnsons largely for his tones.
I have found that it’s the kind of album I like as I continue to change my stand out track . I find this is a great album to have on in the house, driving and traveling on the tube.
This is an album that makes me like music: it’s well produced, written, performed and on a independant label.
