James Vincent McMorrow - If I Had a Boat
James Vincent McMorrow is like when you throw together leftovers (maybe some Bon Iver, Band of Horses, Otis Redding, a touch of William Fitzsimmons) and come out with a result more delicious than you ever could have anticipated.
He’s soulful, he’s folky, he’s alternative. He croons. He composes. What I like best about McMorrow is something incredibly familiar and comforting in his raspy, falsetto voice.
His music’s well-worn in feeling embodies nostalgia - as if you’ve always listened to his CD, Early In The Morning, on repeat, in your bedroom, on road trips.
