Ages ago I wrote about the wonderful debut EP by T.E Morris, front man of Her Name Is Calla. Since that release, in January 2011, he seems to have been a busy boy releasing music regularly on his bandcamp page. He’s also been kept busy with his band. Quite a remarkable level of output if I’m honest, so approaching this new EP entitled ‘The Hanging Man’ I was a little apprehensive. Surely such a prolific output means that quality is filtered out? Apparently not. This is yet again a stunning piece of music from a truly gifted song-writer. Unlike HNIC where post-rock is the order of the day, Morris approaches his solo stuff with a delicacy and intimacy that some of the best solo song-writers fail to capture. At times I cannot believe that this is his side project, possibly undertaken for fun in between Calla records. This is seriously accomplished song-writing delivered in the most beautiful fashion.
I cannot recommend this EP highly enough. 16 odd minutes of pure bliss. ‘I Love You Satellite is simply stunning. Please check out T.E Morris here.
