Song of the Day – Rising Water

I will always remember watching James Vincent McMorrow at a gig in Barcelona last year. English was sparse amongst the audience but he had an astonishing ability to communicate with his Spanish anyway, using his performance to move some people to tears. Whilst he is probably best known for his track “Higher Love”, it is fair to say the rest of his repertoire is secretive to all but his biggest admirers, but nevertheless they were as emotive and calming as you would expect. I first heard his latest single “Rising Water” on vinyl, and accidentally played it at 33RPM rather than the 45RPM it needed, and even though it was much lower and slower, it was still fantastic. Now is that not the definition of versatility?
