James Vincent McMorrow w/ Aidan Knight

1034 N. 4th St., Milwaukee, WI, 53203
414-286-3663
Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow’s intimate folk-rock would have drawn comparisons to For Emma, Forever Ago-era Bon Iver even if McMorrow hadn’t recorded his achingly pretty 2010 debut full-length, Early in the Morning, in a similarly secluded fashion as Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver breakthrough. On his new album, Post Tropical, though, McMorrow breaks from the Bon Iver comparisons with a fuller sound that swaps acoustic guitars for electronic beats, thick keyboards and a good dash of hip-hop. All those drum machines suit him, lending weight to his songs without overshadowing the emotive falsetto that made Early in the Morning so enchanting.
