Clair Morgan New Lions And The Not-Good Night on LP
Clair Morgan is a seven-piece rock outfit from Richmond, Virginia. With influences ranging from the likes of Cursive, Teenage Fanclub, Shipping News, Hum, Cap'n Jazz and several others, it comes as no surprise that this enormous collective bring their own unique spin to mathematically dynamic indie rock.
No surface is left untouched as the group expands on the songwriting of frontman Clair Morgan with a variety of auxiliary instrumentation, smooth harmonies, complex interlaced guitars and syncopated rhythms. All of this combined leads to a unique live experience that can only best be described as a tiny orchestra playing catchy rock tunes. In 2012, Morgan released his debut full-length entitled No Notes. A release that featured Morgan performing a majority of songs written over the span of several years. After several lineup shifts, he has settled into a groove with this current incarnation.
In 2016, Richmond label Egghunt Records will be putting out the group's second LP entitled New Lions and The Not-Good Night. This new album was recorded in Arlington, Virginia at the legendary Inner Ear Studios and mixed and mastered by engineer TJ Lipple.
