Kevin Morby, known for being the bassist of Woods and for being the leader of The Babies, began his solo career in 2013 with the release of Harlem River (Woodsist, 2013). A debut album based on a melancholy and warm folk-rock that led the New York musician, singer and composer to success. A tremendously special, magical and simple sound that has been exploited and experimented in his last two albums, Singing Saw (Dead Oceans/Popstock!, 2016) and City Music (Dead Oceans/Popstock!, 2017).
Kevin Morby has released this year an ambitious new album called Oh My God. The follow-up to 2017’s City Music is a double-LP concept record that brings the Los Angeles folk rocker’s religious imagery to the forefront.
‘Singing Saw’ is the name of the third album by American musician Kevin Morby, who’s known for his work with groups such as The Babies and Woods. With this latest effort Morby perfects his approximation to classic sounds of the ’60s and ’70s. Tonight at La2 Apolo.
Amber Arcades is the moniker of Dutch-born musician Annelotte de Graaf. De Graaf first started writing songs in 2010 while temporarily living in Philadelphia. Back in the Netherlands she put out a first EP in 2012 containing soft-voiced, melancholic folk ballads.
Wanting to develop her sound and mature from the safe bedroom folk environment, she got in touch with producer Ben Greenberg (Beach Fossils, The Men, Destruction Unit) to produce a collection of songs she had written over the years. In May 2015, de Graaf flew out to New York to record the songs in the Strange Weather recording studio in Brooklyn, backed by a band consisting of members of Real Estate, Quilt and Kevin Morby.
The result is a record that is as dreamy and esoteric as it is gripping, presenting slightly off, floating pop melodies over a mixture of kraut-inspired drums, cutting guitars and fuzzed-out organs.
Kevin Morby conegut per ser l’anterior baxista de Woods, i com el cantant, compositor i guitarrista de The Babies, acaba de llençar el single “Dorothy”, primer tastet del seu pròxim àlbum ‘Singing Saw’ (15 de abril). Com a solista aquest serà el seu tercer disc on seguiran fluint el rock, el pop i el folk. Divus Julius Bonasera ha triat “Dorothy” com el single de la setmana.
