Video: Kevin Morby "Harlem River"

Kevin Morby has been a quiet, yet prevalent presence in the Brooklyn local scene, making major contributions to psychedelic folk band Woods and noise pop duo The Babies. Morby is now a resident of Los Angeles, but the city of New York is still vividly alive in his creative endeavors. He most recently set his own course by releasing his first solo effort, Harlem River, presented as a homage to his temporary home for the past five years. The ruminative title track has now been turned into a music video, which displays randomized snapshots of Morby and presumably his partner (played by Jena Malone) making small gestures that depict their mundane eveyday experiences. It rumbles along leisurely akin to the steady rhythm of the track, spiritually entwined with the sensible wander of bustling folk. Morby will be performing at Carpenter House on Long Beach next Monday, February 3rd.  - Juan Rodríguez
