James Vincent McMorrow on Daytrotter

I ended up taking a lot more time off from this blog than intended, but I'm back with another great free release from Daytrotter. If you like free and legal music, Daytrotter.com should be a regular stop. I've linked to some of their stuff for previous posts, but they have a huge library of tracks that artists have recorded at the Daytrotter studio when they are passing through on tour. Usually artists will record 4 or 5 songs with most of them from previous releases but occasionally with a previously unreleased track or two mixed in.

One of the most recent sessions is by James Vincent McMorrow, an Irish folk singer/songwriter. Some of his music is reminiscent of Bon Iver if that's up your alley. Last year he released his first full-length album, Early in the Morning. He will be doing some touring around the U.S. and Canada in September if you're interested in catching him live. He is stopping at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on Saturday, September 17, and tickets are only $12.

His Daytrotter session is here and features two tracks from his full length album along with two unreleased songs.

My two favorite songs from the album are We Don't Eat, which you can stream below, and If I Had a Boat, which you can download courtesy of Seattle radio station KEXP by clicking here.
