UNDER THE RADAR: Kevin Morby – “Come to Me Now”

UNDER THE RADAR: Kevin Morby – “Come to Me Now”.

Kevin Morby, the folk-rocker who used to play in Woods and the Babies, is following up last year’s Singing Saw with a new solo album called City Music. Written at the same time as Singing Saw, City Music functions as a kind of urban companion piece to that record. “It is a mixtape, a fever dream, a love letter dedicated to those cities that I cannot get rid of, to those cities that are all inside of me,” Morby writes in a press release. If Singing Saw took Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell as its totems, Urban Music venerates Lou Reed and Patti Smith, and lead single “Come To Me Now” finds Morby drawling over a gray, drizzly soundscape. 

City Music out June 16th via Dead Oceans.
