I was all set to meet Irish singer songwriter James Vincent McMorrow at his soundcheck when word came that his tour van had caught FIRE and he was stranded on the highway somewhere between Vancouver and Seattle. The promoter would need to send someone down to collect JVM, his band and all their gear to try to make the show.
James Vincent McMorrow ended up arriving barely 30 minutes before his set was supposed to start. Always one to meet his commitments, James walked right off stage (after a beautiful performance) and met me in the alley behind the Rio for a chat. (Yeah, I ask him about all those Bon Hiver comparisons.) Listen to the interview!
James Vincent McMorrow “Cavalier” The debut single off James Vincent McMorrow‘s 2014 record Post Tropical.
James Vincent McMorrow “Higher Love” A very chilled and ethereal take on Steve Winwood‘s 80s radio rock anthem. In the interview, JVM tells me why he loves this classic.

The Canadian prince of disco grooves Cyclist is back today with this acid-tinged funk flip of Vancouver’s Neighbour, featuring Piper Davis on vocals. One of the heaviest hitting mid-tempo burners we’ve heard at Winnie in a minute, be sure to check out his excellent summertime flips of Rogue Vogue and Anoraak.
Bad Wave is the Los Angeles-based duo of Tucker Tota and Patrick Hart. Discovered by Ghost Beach, they combine classically indie vocals with by moody, swirling production. If you can imagine Jungle spending a lazy Sunday on a tandem bike with Blood Orange then Two Door Cinema Club crashing the party on a Segway, you might end up with something like the single Look Out.
