Kevin Morby is the bassist for the summertime psych-folk outfit Woods, and also plays in Cassie Ramone's new band, the Babies. But sometimes he gets to be his own guy, too: last year, he released 'Harlem River', a smoky folk rock record in the Americana tradition. 'My Name' is that record's follow-up, a 7" featuring two new tracks, "My Name" and "We Did It All Wrong", two spectral songs that continue Morby's strange, wistful and often ominous take on folk music.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 August 2014
Aaaaaaaaaaah I remember this guy, he’s the guy from Woods who did that ace ‘Harlem River’ album earlier this year which we all so enjoyed. This is a follow up 7” of brand new songs featuring two examples of his spectral guitar pickings. On the A Side he augments his rustic guitar patterns with matter of fact vocals whereas the B side is a lovely back porch instrumental that it's difficult not to compare to John Fahey, Jack Rose and all those guitar pickers. Its a nice 7” perhaps missing a bit of the magic found on the album but enjoyable nonetheless.
