Comparado pela Allmusic ao Leonard Cohen dos inícios ou ao Bob Dylan de Blonde on Blonde e pela Pitchfork a songwriters mais recentes como Kurt Vile ou Cass McCombs, Kevin Morby apresenta-se pela primeira vez em Portugal em formato duo (com Justin Sullivan na bateria) com uma data exclusiva no MN.

Kevin Morby ficou conhecido pela sua actividade como baixista dos Woods e metade dos The Babies, banda que fundou em NY com Cassie Ramone, guitarrista das Vivian Girls. Em 2013, Morby editou o seu primeiro longa-duração a solo, Harlem River, um álbum para o qual contribuiu gente como a songwriter galesa Cate le Bon ou o prolífero Tim Presley (White Fence).

Harlem River é uma carta de amor a Nova Iorque, cidade que acolheu o texano antes de se mudar de novo para Los Angeles, onde vive actualmente e onde gravou o seu segundo disco, Still Life, com edição prevista para o próximo mês de outubro, na Woodsist Records (casa e ex-casa de bandas como Real Estate, Woods, Thee Oh Sees, Sun Araw, White Fence...).

Harlem River marks the solo debut of songwriter Kevin Morby. Known for his work as the singer/guitarist for the Brooklyn band The Babies and bassist for Woods, the Kansas City native and new Los Angeles resident, calls the record “an homage to New York City,” his adopted home for the past five years.

Harlem River features eight interweaving tales of tragedy and misfortune; a series of desperate characters playing out their dramas with the city as backdrop. A departure from some of the signature sounds of his better known projects, Morby’s songs glisten with a haunting intimacy and while he maintains that the songs are stories about other people, it’s hard not to feel a piece of him in each one; a half-imagined, half-painfully personal world of lost love, addiction, violence and prayers for the departed.

The album was recorded in Los Angeles in February and March of ’13 with producer Rob Barbato who recorded The Babies’ second album, Our House On The Hill, and whose guitar and bass work figure prominently on Harlem River. The album also features drummer Justin Sullivan (The Babies) as well as contributions from Will Canzoneri, Tim Presley (White Fence), Dan Lead, and Cate Le Bon.
