Kevin Morby is four months younger than me, yet he has already been part in some of my favourite bands The Babies and Woods and is now releasing his second album ‘Still Life’ the follow-up to his debut ‘Harlem River’.
Morby recently moved from New York Los Angeles to fully pursue his solo project which is said to be reflected in his forthcoming album ‘Still Life’ whereas previous ‘Harlem River’ is an ode to NYC. The new album reflects both this time in transit and the quiet confines of his new home in Montecito Heights. Scenes of performers, audience expectations and the paradoxical confines of a roving individual perpetually caught in a crowd percolate the songs … Violent fates, wrestling with destiny and the nature of death … the characters in these songs seem to never quite find each other, but perhaps they find themselves.
Still Life’s title comes from an art piece by Maynard Monrow called “Still Life With The Rejects From The Land of Misfit Toys.” The album comes out Oct. 13 via Woodist and he will be supporting Mac Demarco on his autumn tour.
The video for ‘All Of My Life’ is set in a faux ’60s TV show set filmed by friend Patrick O’Dell and features Tim Presley from White Fence Have a look below.
All of my life spent on you, just to be by your side but you never came and you called my name just to disappear
