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!

Thanks for the review Eric. I like that you mentioned other artists who may have influenced Morby; or who styles you hear coming through this artist’s music. I love both Kurt Vile and Lou Reed.

I have never lost as many tears over an artist’s death as I did for Reed. He was kind of a “watershed person” for me in my young adulthood, who opened my world up to his music and lyrics first and then by researching his interests and obsessions, I fell in love with so much more; art and art history, studied many modern dance choreographers and watched their work, became fascinated with Vaclav Havel’s writing and the events of the Prague Spring, researched sound experiments with John Cage and other talented alumni of Black Mountain College. And of course the literature of many writer’s who inspired Lou Reed. It just takes one person to bring forth connections to multiple fascinating artistic and cultural figures and works to last a lifetime of study and enjoyment. Lou did that for me; and he is sorely missed.

Wow, I digressed. I will be going to Music Millennium today to buy this album!
