Stunning sophomore album

James Vincent McMorrow, ‘Post Tropical’

By DERON JOHNSON - Sun-Gazette Correspondent , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

James Vincent McMorrow released his debut album "Early in the Morning" in 2011, earning him widespread praise and comparisons to indie folk stars Bon Iver and Damien Rice. Recorded in a beach house in his native Ireland, the album was filled with simple but well-crafted folk songs heavily featuring acoustic guitar. When he released the single "Cavalier" in October 2013, fans and critics alike were stunned by the radical departure from the folk sound they were used to. Opening with bare vocals and a warm, electric piano, "Cavalier" builds into a lush, multi-textured sound with horns, drums and heavy electric bass. The only thing linking us to the artist from 2011 are the ethereal falsetto vocals, and it left many wondering just what this year's release was going to sound like.
