Springtime Carnivore, aka Los Angeles-based Greta Morgan, will release her debut album of ebullient pop next month via Aquarium Drunkard’s Autumn Tone Records. Produced by Morgan and Richard Swift (Foxygen, The Black Keys, The Shins), the album crackles with warmth; the songs are built on a foundation of classic folk and pop songwriting, synthesizing those roots with capricious production that turns and careens unexpectedly, casting her melodies in varied light and from surprising angles. Throughout, Morgan’s widescreen vocals are adorned with faded strings, blown-out drums, fuzzy guitar tones, and pawnshop keyboards.
After sharing debut single, “Sun Went Black“, Springtime Carnivore is now offering up another dreamy and inviting number, “Name On A Matchbook“. Upon listening to both of these songs, it’s immediately apparent the music of Springtime Carnivore sounds familiar, yet is distinctly skewed and modern.
