Artist of the week

Today I come with what I think, is the Irish answer to Bon Iver.

I meet James Vincent McMorrow at “Temple Bar” (Dublin) doing a version of the well-known song by Chris Isaak’s “Wicked gameand with his first album, Early in the morning (2010) he won my admiration.

His sound is half way between Bon Iver (with his falsetto and his tempo), Megafaun (to the rhythm of banjo), Mumford and Sons (with their joyful songs and commercial attraction) and Antony and the Johnson’s (with his vibration).

Early in the morning consists mostly of quiet folk music based on acoustic guitar, banjo, organ and falsetto voice, signature of James.

With this first album, he laid the Foundation of what would become the start of a promising career.

An album to be treasured.

Hoy vengo, con lo que a mi parecer, es la versión irlandesa de Bon Iver.

Conocí a James Vincent McMorrow en el “Temple Bar ” (Dublín) haciendo una versión de la conocidísima canción de Chris Isaak’s “Wicked game” y con su primer álbum, “Early in the morning” (2010) se ganó mi admiración.

Su sonido está a medio camino entre Bon Iver (con su falsete y su tempo), Megafaun (con su ritmo de banjo), Mumford and sons (con sus canciones alegres y con un alto atractivo comercial) y a Antony and the Johnsons (con su vibrato).

Early in the morning consta principalmente de música folk tranquila y muy cuidada a base de guitarra acústica, banjo, órgano y voz en falsete, firma de James.

Con este primer disco, sentó las bases de lo que sería el inicio de una prometedora carrera.

Un álbum para atesorar.
