Singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow will release his second album, Post Tropical on 29 November 2013*. McMorrow’s Early In The Morning was a seriously impressive debut album and his next album will be eagerly anticipated by anyone worth their salt.

The album is proudly brought to you by the pecan farm just shy of the Mexican border in El Paso where McMorrow recorded Post Tropical. Not really, but wouldn’t it be cool to have a few bag of nuts with every purchase? Just saying!

It’s the same place that At The Drive In and Yeah Yeah Yeahs have rested their weary heads at one point or another, so I’m going to have high expectations that pecans are an instrumental force for musical inspiration. Mmmm, pecans!

Post Tropical will be released by Dew Process in Australia, Believe Recordings in Europe and Vagrant Records, US.
