Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow’s acclaimed debut album, Early in the Morning, reached number 1, went platinum and picked up a Choice Music Prize nomination upon its release in 2010.

Wiping the palate of Early in the Morning clean, his new album Post Tropical is a stunning piece of work. Its broadened horizons may come as a surprise to everyone but James and the people who know him best. Across the album, new sounds and textures are explored: 808s on the haunting “Red Dust,” looped piano on “Look Out,” and the waterfall-effect of 12 mandolins on “The Lakes.” McMorrow’s sometimes-surreal songwriting holds each element in place, on album which he wrote, produced, and played virtually every instrument.
