Preview: Kevin Morby at Music Hall of Williamsburg

By Will Oliver, August 31st 2017

Kevin Morby has kept his consistent winning streak going strong with his new album City Music (released via Dead Oceans), which is one of my favorite albums of 2017 so far.

We saw him just a few months ago when he stopped in for a performance at Bowery Ballroom for the first leg of his tour in support of the album. He returns to us next week, this time headed to Brooklyn for a performance at Music Hall Of Williamsburg.

Along with Morby, the show will feature an opening performance from Feels guitarist Shannon Lay, who is the first signee and release on Morby’s own record label, Mare Records (an imprint of Woodsist).

Tickets for the show are currently still available to purchase, but don’t wait too long as it’s likely to sell out closer to the show.

Kevin Morby at Bowery Ballroom (May 24, 2017)

Kevin Morby’s new album City Music is one of the best things we’ve heard so far in 2017, an album that just gets better and better with each and every listen.

He’s been touring hard in support of the new record, which included a sold out performance at Bowery Ballroom on May 24. Our photographer Adam Heller was on hand to capture the performance from both Morby and John Andrews and the Yawns, who opened things up.

Find shots of both acts posted in the photo gallery below.

Kevin Morby at Mercury Lounge (June 21, 2016)

By Anthony Bauer, October 31st 2016


On an early summer evening back in June, Kevin Morby made his return to the New York City at the Mercury Lounge while out on tour in support of his fantastic new album Singing Saw which came out in April (via Dead Oceans).  Singing Saw is on my running list of top/best albums of the year, so I was very excited to see his show as I was dying to hear the new material.

It was a treat to get to see him play Mercury as, well… he should easily be playing somewhere twice the size.  I saw him a few times back in 2015 and every time I saw him it was better than the last, and this kept that pattern alive with being one of the best shows I’ve seen him put on yet.

On Sunday night Baby’s All Right hosted a very solid night of rock and roll with a heavy folk influence. The stop in Brooklyn was the latest for Kevin Morby and Ryley Walker’s tour, and also featured support from Zachary Cale and J.R. Bohannon. From top to bottom you had an incredible set of tunes from three powerful storytellers of their own right.

We All Want Someone’s Best Songs Of 2017

By Will Oliver, January 12th 2018

And the time has come for the one post that all my friends actually read on these here pages, my best (or favorite) songs of 2017. These are the songs that I obsessed over throughout all of last year and many are still getting heavy rotation into the new one.

You’ll find select highlights from many of the albums that appeared on my best albums list but also a few new acts who blossomed or select songs that stood out on albums that didn’t quite shine as bright. Either way, I hope that you find at least one new song or artist that you didn’t know beforehand and that they make your day that much brighter. Thanks again for sticking around with us for another year and here’s to a bigger and better year in 2018.

As usual, the list is posted in a countdown format from 100-1 and I have made a Spotify playlist which you can find here or embedded at the very end of the post. All the songs are in there except for Ty Segall’s “Orange Color Queen,” as the album is not on Spotify.

Without further ado, here are my favorite songs from 2017:
