Release date: April 15th 2013
The R G Morrison are yet another band from Totnes Devon, although you wouldn't know it. They've played across the world at the biggest, smallest and weirdest festivals, on all manner of stages, support slots and carparks… although when in Totnes the four piece (of sorts) are the guy from the record shop, his wife, a theatre nurse and that New Yorker who drums for Jeffery Lewis. Anonymity is a good fit.
"It takes puritan blisters and serious self-control to maintain this sort of melodic hush" - Pitchfork 8.2
"This tangibly focused, warming and reclusive record seems like Blighty's answer to Bon Iver" - Mojo * * * *
"These mournful ballads emerge, gritty but glowing. The slow, quiet songs are usefully interrupted by moments of electric guitar mayhem, but nothing is allowed to get in the way of Morrison's addictive voice" * * * * The Sunday Times
"Tremendous - from pastoral folk to alt. country wig out" * * * * * Uncut
"Bonnie 'Prince' Billy meets The Band. Thrilling. High quality Americana from the wild West Country" * * * * Q
… and have you heard of them?… quite!
New album 'Diamond Valley' was recorded last June with a rich analogue wooze and will be released later in 2013.
