Weekend Best Bets
James Vincent McMorrow. Post-Tropical, Irish singer Morrow's new album, his second, is full of little moments and textures that emerge as one listens deeply. McMorrow sings in a flexible falsetto, which gives the songs a delicate, tender center. That subtle beauty and slowly building energy will be on display when McMorrow, fronting a four-piece band, comes to Union Transfer on Saturday night.
