Herein lies the beginning of the countdown of my Top 10 albums of the year!
James Vincent McMorrow - Post Tropical
Recorded in the middle of nowhere in Texas, Irish singer / songwriter McMorrow's sophomore album lays down a warm bed of folk, brass and electronica as his angelic vocals scale gorgeous heights.
“I think surroundings impact everything. I think musicians, artists, respond to aesthetics. If you put yourself in a pretty environment, you’re more inclined to try and do it justice I guess. There’s definitely elements of it that found their way in. It would be impossible for it not to. Every minute you look out the window, you realize where you are. The whole place was so different from anything I've ever experienced before." -McMorrow
