James Vincent McMorrow @ MHOW - 4/11/14
James Vincent McMorrow

McMorrow garnered the best response from Cavalier, which fuses his gloomy folk-mindedness with lethargic, hip-hop undertones. When McMorrow's crackling alto reaches the utmost limits of his vocal range with lyrics, "I remember my first love," young girls fidget excitedly and grown men get teary-eyed. McMorrow is at his best when all other distractions are eliminated: the pyramid light fixtures, the laser projections, the supporting band. With nothing but a keyboard, he crooned out a blueprint rendition of the last track on Post Tropical, Outside, Digging. When he articulated the hard-sounding syllables, flecks of spit dance above his head like swirling dust motes in the spotlight. [CMJ]
Dublin singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow brought his North American tour to NYC for three shows, including Bowery Ballroom last Wednesday (4/9), Gigstock at The Green Space on Thursday, and Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday. Like he's been doing on this tour, he split the sets pretty evenly between his Bon Iver-esque 2010 LP Early in the Morning and his Bon Iver & James Blake-esque 2014 LP Post Tropical. Opening the Bowery and MHOW shows was Canadian songwriter Aidan Knight. The above review is of the Bowery show and pictures from MHOW are in this post.
