Andrew Morgan's eponymous sophomore album picks up where dreaming debut "Misadventures in Radiology" leaves off. The second installment in the Kansas City-born songwriter's "Exile Trilogy," "Andrew Morgan" evokes cornerstone chamber pop albums like The Zombies' "Odessey & Oracle" and Badly Drawn Boy's "The Hour of the Bewilderbeast," yet bears a scope of arrangement and diversity of instrumentation all its own. A sense of wonder unifies the album's 17 tracks, which find a kindred spirit as much in mid-20th century Disney animated features as in the magical realism of Magritte, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and The Clientele. Brought to life by a cast of 33 from October 1999 - May 2008 in 11 cities across 7 states and 2 countries, "Andrew Morgan" is a collection that is at once familiar and thrillingly foreign– a thread of pop classicism that, while schooled in tradition, celebrates imagination above all.
