More Photographs (a Continuum) (New LP)

Kevin Morby

Kevin Morby writes (and records, and imagines) at an almostincomparable clip, and his most recent album, This Is A Photograph,studies life, time and mortality through myriad lenses. It’s a dynamic,buoyant record on big, heavy themes, so it only makes sense that Morbyfound he wasn’t quite done with it on it’s completion. More Photographs(A Continuum) finds new nooks, corners and vantage points. “”If This IsA Photograph is a house that you have been living inside of,”” says Morby,””then More Photographs is, perhaps, the same home just experienceddifferently. As if you, it’s inhabitant, have taken a tab of somethingpsychedelic and now, suddenly, you’ve replaced your eyeglasses withkaleidoscopes.”” Here, Morby returns to his landmark album’s bottomless themeswith new wisdom, new imagination, and the winking, looping callbacksthat tie his full body of work together in uniquely special ways.””Everything you once thought was familiar,”” he continues, “”suddenlyappears differently, shifting shapes, color and sonic landscapes.”” “”FiveEasy Pieces Revisited”” captures the same moment from Bobby’s pointof view; “”This Is A Photograph II”” takes a similar tact, revisiting it’spredecessor from a different angle. “”Triumph”” explores more of themyths and deaths that surround Memphis, TN, this time inspired by BigStar’s Chris Bell. And “”Kingdom Of Hearts”” arrives as an origin story toboth This Is A Photograph and it’s new companion. “”With every collection of songs,”” says Morby, “”I feel I must cast themout of me before moving onto the next project, and here I knew thatwhat I had begun with This Is A Photograph was not finished. Releasingthis collection is my tying a bow on that time and place in my creativelife.”” With a luxurious nine tracks – three re-imaginings and six brandnew songs – More Photographs (A Continuum) is prequel, sequel andprimer to an already rich and generous record from one of our mostluminous modern songwriters.
