“Sam Morrow’s third album cements his place as a member of LA’s Country elite” – KCRW makes “Quick Fix” “Today’s Top Tune”
Sam Morrow’s “Quick Fix,” a standout from his acclaimed new album Concrete and Mud, is KCRW’s “Today’s Top Tune” today.
KCRW says, “Sam Morrow's third album cements his place as a member of LA’s Country elite. Reminiscent of Little Feat and recalling Lynyrd Skynyrd - Morrow conjures up fine countrified rock on ‘Quick Fix.’"
The song cracked the top 40 of the Americana radio singles chart last week, coming in at #36. Concrete and Mud is currently #21 on the Americana radio albums chart, #5 on the Euro Americana Chart and #15 on the Roots Music Report chart.
The Boot premiered an incredible live version of the track last week, saying “swampy riffs, irresistible grooves and Morrow's gravelly, growly vocals provide the backbone for the tune, which is all about the cheap pleasure of instant gratification.”
Here’s what else we’ve been hearing about Sam and Concrete and Mud:
“Concrete And Mud’s vibe is less sunshine and palm trees and more in line with the hard surfaces and grit of it’s album title…Morrow pairs his brawny voice and tales of life at the margins with brittle funk grooves and greasy slide guitar licks."
“Steeped in southern swagger, Concrete and Mud is Morrow’s arrival as one of SoCal’s premiere country-rock troubadours.”
“Concrete and Mud, displays the confidence, mastery, and winsomeness of an artist who knows exactly who he is, what he wants to say, and what he is doing. The set marks the moment Morrow rightfully claims his place among the very best that country and Americana have to offer.”
“Should be on the radar of anyone who loves greasy, crunchy, deep-fried Southern rock”
“Concrete and Mud finds the 27-year-old artist exploring his myriad influences, including Texas country, Southern rock, and old-school funk.”
"Concrete and Mud is both his most fun and most exciting to date."
“The Texas native’s third album, last month’s Concrete and Mud, is his most complete yet, reflecting the often somber moods of his first two records and his more upbeat, funky, rockin’ live show.”
