When we first played music from Ireland's James Vincent McMorrow a couple of years ago, we couldn't predict how Milwaukee would react. Milwaukee embraced James Vincent McMorrow and his music. In fact, McMorrow's first show in Milwaukee out-sold any other city on his first tour in the US. Folks have been asking me when he will be releasing new music for the past few months. Well, the wait is over (almost).
I'm really happy to announced that McMorrow will be releasing his sophomore album entitled Post Tropical on January 14 via Vagrant Records.
"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 seduces you towards hidden depths."
In addition to the new album, McMorrow will release a trilogy of music videos directed by Aoife McArdle. You can listen to the opening track "Cavalier" via Noisey's website, and watch the album trailer below. You can get the song "Cavalier" now by pre-ordering the album via iTunes.
