Additional Info:
Big Bad Luv is the record John Moreland made after, after everything in his life changed. For the better.He sings in one of those accents from flyover country that's impossible to locate and implausible to mimic. (Texas, by way of Northern Kentucky, but mostly Tulsa, as it happens.) He sings directly from his heart, with none of the restraint and filters and caution the rest of us would apply for public protection. He sings with resolute courage.He sings.And writes. Writes with simple eloquence about love and faith and isolation; the human condition; what every song and poem and novel is about, at the core: Life.«Break My Heart Sweetly» came from his second solo album, released in 2013 and titled In the Throes. High on Tulsa Heat, released through Thirty Tigers, landed him on Colbert's stage (that's the LP Colbert held up). Song placements on «Sons of Anarchy,» an emerging artist nomination from the Americana Music Association.Enough sales to compel Moreland to give up his DIY label operation, and sign with 4AD. «It grew to the point where I couldn't really handle everything myself,» he says. «Even with a manager and a small team, I came to the conclusion that I'd like to play music and not worry about the other stuff.»Enough success to buy a measure of peace, and not more pain. «I expected to just play in the corner of the bar and have people not really pay attention, make $100, go home and go to work the next morning, doing something I didn't like,» Moreland says. «So, yeah, I didn't really expect to be here. But, then, on the other hand, I did. I feel like I'm good enough to be here. And I've always been confident, even when I probably shouldn't have been. I knew I was an outsider. I didn't have a lot of faith in the music industry to let me in. But I guess they have. To some extent. That's what I hoped for, but I wasn't sure that would be how it worked.»Big Bad Luv is, at least by comparison...maybe...a happier record? «I don't think I'm writing songs that are that much different,» Moreland says. «It's always been a positive thing at heart, even if a song isn't sunshine and rainbows. At the very least my songs have been a way to exorcise negative feelings so that I can move on. And hopefully they provide that same experience to listeners. So that's what I'm still doing. I think it's a positive thing. I think this record, there's definitely a change in attitude, but it's the same point of view.»Oh, yeah. And Tchad Blake mixed it. «He's also the only person I've ever worked with on a record whose name I can drop.»«Slow down easy, I've been hauling a heavy soul,» he sings, this song titled «Slow Down Easy.» Carrying it for all of us, but no longer alone.
