Few acts in today’s music world convey themselves like normal occupants of the globe. In the grand spectrum Kevin Morby could be our favorite based on his actions alone. As this tear has played out, Morby has done his part and then some as far as what an artist can do. As far as his music goes, Morby has shared a single off of his new 4-track demo series “Sundowner.” As far as singles go it’s a trip but as far as demos go, A Night at the Little Los Angeles is something else entirely. Stream the track here before preordering your own copy for the album ahead of its October 08 reveal.
The song has a real in the moment feel to it. The song has a nice played out feel here even against this new set of demos. His vocals hit with precision and emphasis, even when he’s not hitting so hard. The words stick in you head the moment you hear them, almost as if they’re set in motion. Morby doesn’t kid when he sings, his words mean something and then some. When he wants to get soulful he does so, when he wants to chill he does that as well. The words here matter as he sings, they aren’t just closures in a space. The song does well and stays in its lane while he’s trying and even more so when he’s not.
The song can be heard wherever you stream music. A Night at the Little Los Angeles is available for preorder directly from Secretly Canadian before it drops on October 08. Kevin Morby is on tour starting September 23 at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY until November 23 in Washington, DC at 9:30 Club. His complete tour dates can be accessed here.
