James Vincent McMorrow – “If I Had a Boat”

220px-James_Vincent_McMorrow_Early_in_the_MorningMy absolute favorite James Vincent McMorrow song. It’s heartbreak chic, a noire-esque guitar melody mixed with a light and breathy tone and choir style backup vocals. The lyrics are poetic yet unforgettable, making this the best song to listen to when you have no idea where you’re going or what you’re feeling. It dives down into your soul and lets you see a little clearer. James Vincent McMorrow now joins my growing list of favorite indie folk artists. His first album, Early in the Morning, is a must hear. His second album, Post Tropical, recently came out at the beginning of this year and I have yet to listen to that one, but I’ve heard it’s just as good, if not better, than the first.
