This month’s selection was City Music by Kevin Morby.
You’ll get a little intro from one of the Vinyl Me, Please co-founders. It rolls through the ideas around the selection – but not into depth about the artist themselves.
Each Vinyl Me, Please monthly shipment comes with an LP-sized piece of artwork and a cocktail recipe. These are a few fun little extras when you’re unboxing and listening!
Kevin Morby City Music
This month brought a selection that I wasn’t familiar with at all – but I’m always down for music discovery, so I was really just as excited as past months!
City Music is the 4th album from Kevin Morby – an LA-based artist.
As expected, the packaging and vinyl itself is beautifully done.
The album is very good! His solo work is a nice slow, methodical, 44 minutes – with very catchy songwriting. You can hear different artist style in different songs, ranging from the songwriting/singing style of Lou Reed to the catchy hooks of Kurt Vile. It’s a great ride!
It comes with a nice insert booklet to round out the pressing.
Verdict: I really liked this month’s shipment! It’s always a toss-up when it comes to an album and artist that I know nothing about – but this time, it was a homerun for me!
