In 2017, Kevin Morby was ready to record an album he just completed writing, the one that would become Oh My God (2019). But the simple act of buying an old four track TASCAM (model 424, thank you) would lead to a chain of events inspiring yet another album, Sundowner, set for release October 16 via Dead Oceans. The title comes from a nickname Morby and songwriter/musician Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) gave themselves describing the melancholy seizing them both during every twilight gloom of sundown.
Morby is about to lead the way through loads of memories in a livestream series featuring music from his previous releases, leading up to his new album. The first show includes the music of Morby’s beautiful 2013 debut, Harlem River, starting at 8 p.m. (Central) tomorrow, Thursday September 10, on Noonchorus. Your virtual ticket gets you a link to the performance, and you can find the full livestream schedule on Morby’s website.
