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.

In between a crazy months-long tour that took Waxahatchee across the US and Europe this year, and with a fall tour that kicks off in just a few weeks, Katie Crutchfield found time to record a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “After Hours.” Crutchfield is joined by singer-songwriter Kevin Morby on the recording; the duo toured together last spring.

“After Hours” appeared on The Velvet Underground’s 1969 self-titled album. Crutchfield posted the home-recorded cover on her Tumblr, and tweeted, “the world is a dark place. here’s a cover of ‘after hours’.” Listen here. The Waxahatchee bandleader’s ...

Free at Noon Flashback: Kevin Morby highlights City Music ahead of a holiday weekend

Kevin Morby | Photo by Emma Silverstone for WXPN

Recalling Glen Campbell’s elaborate outfits, Kevin Morby stood at the center of the World Cafe Live stage dressed in a white suit with a cascade of music notes down the side and rhinestone initials on the lapels.

It may seem a little goofy, but it’s all about balance with the Texas native: lighthearted and charming on the outside, deep and introspective on the inside. Both qualities were on display today as he and and his band joined the Free at Noon crowd in support of his forthcoming City Music effort.

Highlighting the new record, which ...
