Artist: Kevin Morby

Track: “Dorothy”

kevinmorby

Kevin Morby’s latest solo offering, Singing Saw, has been described as “written simply and realized orchestrally.” This statement makes perfect sense within the context of the album – none of the songs feel overly complex in nature, but the delicate addition of instruments like horns and pianos breathe life into Kevin Morby’s authentic songwriting. A shining example would be the invigorating ‘Dorothy’, which urges you to tap your feet alongside what could perhaps be Morby’s most exuberant performance on the album. Yes, he sounds similar to Bob Dylan at times, but he also harbors enough of his own unique style to stand out as different in the modern folk scene. Behind his somewhat familiar croon, ‘Dorothy’ steadily swells into a bombastic number with heavily layered instrumentation. The song is simply brimming with energy, and one can’t help but feel alive and refreshed by its optimistic mood. Armed with a guitar, a knack for storytelling, and unique orchestral touches, the former Woods bassist seems to be realizing his full potential on Singing Saw, and ‘Dorothy’ stands tall and proud as the peak of his accomplishments.

Nice write up, man.

Wasn't too keen on this song after one listen but it might grow. Still need to check the rest of the album. Only heard I Have Been to the Mountain and now this.

Cheers man. I think I have been to the mountain and Dorothy are a bit more flashy than the other tracks. U might dig songs like black flowers, water, and singing saw better, those are more straightforward singer-songwriter folk more along the lines of Bob Dylan
