Greta Morgan has been one of my favorite singers since arriving on the scene with The Hush Sound while still in her teens a decade ago. I’ve followed her through multiple projects, including work in Gold Motel and now with Springtime Carnivore (a solo project). It’s the latter project that has seen new music emerge from the prolific Morgan, and for that we can be ever thankful.
Now available for our listening pleasure is “Face in the Moon,” which comes off her upcoming second full-length album Midnight Room as Springtime Carnivore on Oct. 7 via Autumn Tone. Morgan said the song was written in a “15-minute flash after a week of lovelorn, sleepless nights watching space conspiracy documentaries and listening to Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska & R.E.M.’s Murmur.”
Morgan will tour the record alongside new collaborator Katy Goodman (La Sera), which whom she’s just announced a side project doing punk covers, with the record being called Take It, It’s Yours (due out Aug. 26 via Polyvinyl). Recently I saw the two debut one of these tracks together live in someone’s nice Silverlake home and it was quite pleasant to hear. Check out their cover of the Buzzcocks’ “Ever Fallen in Love” for a taste.
Greta Morgan and La Sera will finish up their upcoming tour with a stop in their Los Angeles home at the Bootleg Theater on Nov. 5. Tickets are now on sale and are priced at $13 and $15.
