Irish singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow will be releasing his next album ‘We Move’, his third, on the 2nd of September. McMorrow has indicated that the new release will be significantly different than its predecessors, including 2014’s acclaimed ‘Post Tropical’. He explained in this beautifully heartfelt Facebook post in July that ‘We Move’ is a reflection of his grappling with self-confidence and being honest in his music. To have a taste of the new material, he has shared the promo video for lead single ‘Rising Water’, which you can watch at the bottom of this post.
McMorrow will be following the album release with tour dates in Ireland and the UK in October. Tickets are on sale now. Grab ‘We Move’ for your very own at the start of September on Believe Recordings. For more on his music and performances on TGTF, go here.

(ICYMI, we’ve already reviewed it right back here.)

San Diego noise pop duo Crocodiles have announced a brief run of UK tour dates for this October, just ahead of the release of their 6th LP ‘Dreamless’. Due out on the 21st of October via Zoo Music, the album explores a new, less guitar-based sound, leaning instead on keyboards and a broader sonic palette. “We’ve always been a guitar band and I think we just wanted to challenge ourselves and our aesthetic,” says band member Brandon Welchez. “Only one song has zero guitar but in general we tried to find alternatives to fill that space.” Have a listen for yourself in the video for the album’s first single ‘Telepathic Lover’, just below the tour date listing.
Welchez and bandmate Charles Rowell will cross the pond for four UK dates in mid-October. Tickets for the following shows are available now. TGTF’s brief previous coverage of Crocodiles can be found by clicking here.
