#reviewoftheweek / James Vincent McMorrow - Post Tropical

Palm trees, ocean waves, and flamingos are not the first images that come to mind when thinking about and listening to James Vincent McMorrow's music, but his latest album is a little bit of a departure from his signature sound. He has had a bit of a dark depressive quality throughout his music in the past, but his new album features is same indie mellow sound, but with a little bit more of an upbeat bright quality. The stand out tracks on the album are "Red Dust," "Gold," and the first single "Cavalier." His voice is equally haunting and uplifting and his lyrics are incredibly poetic. JVM is a prolific voice and given the right opportunity and the right exposure could find himself as big and as popular as artists like Passenger and Gotye.
