LISTEN // Kevin Morby Shares “Moonshiner” Off Upcoming 7″ Out Sept. 4, Announces European Tour

In anticipation of Kevin Morby’s Dead Oceans debut in 2016 and in support of a thorough fall touring schedule, we’re pleased to announce a 7″ slated for release this September. “Moonshiner” and “Bridge To Gaia” are two unreleased gems from Morby’s reliably powerful, yet understated work. The 7-inch is out September 4th, but we’re sharing “Moonshiner” today.

Says Morby, “I wrote ‘Moonshiner’ a few years ago after reading what has become one of my favorite contemporary books: The Sisters Brothers. The book was very inspiring to me at that time and it pulled a few different songs out of me – ‘Moonshiner’ being the most directly influenced. I wrote the b-side, ‘Bridge To Gaia,’ while on vacation in Porto, Portugal. I ended up there after a tour and it quickly became my favorite city in all of Europe. The apartment I was renting was at the foot of a bridge that would take you to the town across the river, Gaia. It, like everything about Porto, is immensely beautiful and inspiring. It’s a different beauty than I had ever experienced. There was almost something sinister to it. The clouds moved fast, there was always a bell tolling and all the school kids wore capes. This song came out of all that.”

Summer is her again which means Bleached is back with a new 7″ EP called For The Feel coming out digitally July 22nd / physically September 16th on Dead Oceans. You can listen to the title track from the EP via Stereogum premiere above or on Soundcloud / YouTube.

From the band, “For The Feel is a song we originally wrote for our full length but it didn’t sound right once recorded so we held off on putting it on the record. Finally when it came down to recording it again we were really inspired by the sound of The Kinks, we even used The Kinks amp. I’m really glad we waited to release this song because now it’s perfect”
