CD REVIEW: James Vincent McMorrow "James Vincent McMorrow EP"

James VIncent McMorrow EP
Although it's only four songs long, the debut self titled EP by James Vincent McMorrow is excellent. He already released a full length album overseas, but this EP is his arrival stateside, and he makes quite a name for himself. Landing somewhere between Bon Iver and Damien Rice, the Irish singer/songwriter uses vivid imagery and cunning delivery, showcasing all of his talents in just a brief amount of time. "If I Had A Boat" is sure to turn heads and "We Don't Eat" is McMorrow performing at his best. His mellow indie style and folk energy is purely beautiful. The other two tracks on the EP are just demos, hopefully to get the full studio treatment with the release of a full length album in the not-too-distant future. James Vincent McMorrow is the newest sensation to make the trip across the pond, and despite just the tease we get from his debut, he's going to to be huge.
