Also, tonight comes the incomparable James Vincent McMorrow. His voice is something to behold for sure, and he opens tonight at the Paradise Rock Club. His new debut album, Early in the Morning displays McMorrow’s soft crooning falsetto vocals speaks softly, but these songs can be hugely powerful. Case in point, the single ‘If I Had a Boat,’ the song toils in the allegory of being lost at sea until found (finding love) the music climactically reaches a high point in exultation… a final release… it’s powerful and a common theme in McMorrow’s music and a trend in his vocals. These songs just really grab a hold of you.
He opens for Bell X1 at the Paradise tonight.
