Have you ever felt more alone in a crowd of thousands than when you’re with a few good friends? City Life explores this phenomenon, as much of the US population finds itself living this reality daily.
Listen to “City Music” Here:
Envisioned as a companion piece to last year’s Singing Saw, which explored beauty and freedom, seizing upon the rot that seeps into even the supposedly safest of realms, City Music does much the same –although the concept is different and its sound is a direct counterpoint.
Pitchfork declares: “Morby’s City is a stand-in for a heart, for community; his band’s nuanced interplay is living proof of the fact that he knows how good it feels to be part of something bigger than yourself.”
City Music is a brilliant record for lots of reasons. Somehow, it brings together sage lessons about social construction, from childhood through adulthood, all the while expressing itself with clarity from musical perspectives.
“In his best album yet, Morby makes a prayer out of the squall.”
Kevin Morby –City Music
City Music draws from influences like Lou Reed and Patti Smith to inspire creative, complex storytelling that’s sure to captivate the most discerning of listeners.
Morby’s voice exudes confidence beyond that which he has shown on previous efforts, demonstrating maturity in his craft.
Morby fulfills the promise many heard on last year’s album, bringing his most realized effort of songwriting and lyricism to fruition.
