The Irish folk music singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow released his debut album, Early In The Morning, in February of 2010. According to his bio, the album was recorded over a five month period in an isolated house by the sea. James himself describes his recording experience by saying:
This record was borne out of my desire to create something singular, take the simplest of chords, wrap them in washes of melody, so lines come in, they drop out, everything ebbs and flows as the songs move towards their inevitable end. I don’t sit down with an agenda when I write, I usually have a first line, and a vague sense in my head of where I’m going, but no real solid structure. Music tends to reveal itself to me over the course of weeks and months. It’s probably quite like sculpting, you have a chisel, you know what’s waiting for you inside the stone, all that’s left is to chip away the pieces and reveal it.
Check out a couple of my favorites below, as well as a dubstep remix that I couldn’t help but include.
