Album of the week

Kevin Morby – Sundowner

The Texas singer-songwriter has released his sixth solo record on Dead Oceans. Sundowner is “an attempt to put the Middle American twilight — its beauty profound, though not always immediate — into sound.”

“It is a depiction of isolation. Of the past. Of an uncertain future. Of provisions. Of an omen. Of a dead deer. Of an icon. Of a Los Angeles themed hotel in rural Kansas. Of billowing campfires, a mermaid and a highway lined in rabbit fur. It is a depiction of the nervous feeling that comes with the sky’s proud announcement that another day will be soon coming to a close as the pink light recedes and the street lamps and house lights suddenly click on.”
