James Vincent McMorrow in Chicago in 2011 (more by Ben Rodig)

Dublin singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow first surfaced in 2010 with his debut LP, Early in the Morning, which was more than a little indebted to the falsetto-voiced indie folk of Bon Iver. It's now been a few years and he's re-invented himself pretty significantly for the album's followup, Post Tropical (due out 1/14 via Vagrant), which sees him taking his falsetto-tinged folk in more soulful, ambient electronic directions, so it's a little more like James Blake than Bon Iver this time around, but it's also pretty distinct-sounding on its own. The whole album is pretty gorgeous, and a lot more promising than his debut would have hinted. You can stream the album in full on iTunes Radio and listen to its single, "Cavalier" plus a recent live session video of that song, below.

James is part of the just-announced Coachella 2014 lineup, and he's since revealed that he'll be doing a full North American tour leading up to his appearance at the fest. That tour includes NYC shows on April 9 at Bowery Ballroom and April 11 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale Friday, January 17 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/15) at noon.

All dates are listed, along with the song stream and video, below...

As an artist you really have to give enough time to do a good training.

I do mean alot, tho. I might not be expressing myself correctly due to be speaking a language that is not my own and do apologize that sometimes I say things that are not right accordingly to what I am trying to speak. I find that their sound in their essence is pretty much alike, of course they perform it their own way and have different takes on Folk music, otherwise they wouldn't very good artists, would they? As for their falsetto being alike or not, I believe that this isn't a question of logic anymore, it's just different pairs of ears listening to the same thing differentely. And no, I can't compare, and I wouldn't if there werent other factors involved that made the connection between these artists.´╗┐
