At the beginning of the year James Vincent McMorrow from Dublin released his album “Post Tropical” via Vagrant Records. It is said that on a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border, the album on which he wrote, produced, and played virtually every instrument on, was recorded in three and a half weeks. It took over eight months to to construct of course and James really wanted to give this record the feel and movement of the hip-hop records that he loves.
Now we had never heard of this Irish singer/songwriter, but after having heard Atu‘s remix of “Glacier” we were baffled beyond believe. Such an amazing, melodic piece of music that cannot be boxed into genres. Perfect piano play combined with James Vincent McMorrow’s soul piercing vocals creates instant goosebumps. Really hope to hear more collaborative efforts in the near future, because these guys are like peanut butter and jelly!
