Gurf Morlix - Thursday, April 19th 8:00
Morlix has been writing songs almost as long as he’s been playing guitar (and a dozen other instruments). Morlix lives in Texas, and is identified with the Austin music scene, but he was actually born in New York state and grew up near Buffalo. His songs have a singular worldview and can be both harrowing and heartening, often at the same time. Morlix’s signatures are lyrics that don’t waste a syllable, instrumentation without a spare note – there is also a hopefulness and vulnerability not always readily evident. Morlix comes by his musical minimalism naturally: “It’s the way my brain is wired. I like to hear everything clearly.” Morlix continues to create his own singular musical universe, but the yin and yang of his outlook has never been as in sync as it is now, making it even more inviting to join him on Planet Gurf.
