The Fashionably Late Top 66 of 2017: Kevin Morby

It’s been a hell of a year. 2017 was exhausting, stressful, and at times just plain terrifying. But for all the mess that’s happened over the past 12 months, and there’s certainly been so much, there’s also been a lot of good going on in the world. From a musical standpoint, for instance, 2017 was rather exceptional. There were so many glorious new sounds to take in.

I’ve put together my list of favorites from the year that was, a touch fashionably late as always. Once again, I’ve decided to eschew a ranking system and instead give you an alphabetical ...

On The Road Again: Kevin Morby

Well, well, well. Look who’s taking their show on the road?

Kevin Morby released City Music earlier this year (Dead Oceans), but thankfully he’s not resting on his critically-acclaimed laurels and retiring into some artistic hiatus.

Oh no. No sir. Not a chance.

April 2018 will see Morby hit the road on a fairly extensive US tour, taking him from Portland (OR) to Kansas City (MO), and a whole lot of places in between. He was born a rambling man, perhaps. Dates below, this is a strongly suggested tour to add to your gig-going calendar for 2018.

Thanksgiving’s over, so you know what that means: time for bounties of the corniest, jolliest fa la la holiday cheer. While Christmas classics still run the show, it’s always fun to hear new takes on nostalgia-ridden tunes. Amazon agrees, as they’ve compiled a playlist called “Indie for the Holidays,” which includes a gleeful cover of the Beach Boys’ “Little Saint Nick,” by surf rockers, Best Coast.

In a statement with Pitchfork, Best Coast says of the song: “Being from California and being heavily influenced by ...

Kevin Morby releases “Baltimore” benefit single, covered VU with Waxahatchee

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

“I wrote Baltimore at the time I was conceiving both Singing Saw and City Music and recorded a version during both sessions with two different bands. I love the song dearly, but in the end thought that thematically it didn’t belong on either album, and thus have been waiting for this moment to release it as what it has always been meant to be – a single.” – Kevin Morby.
