Autumn in LA is finally here... which means temperatures in the 70s during the day and the 60s at night, and though that is a tame autumn by most standards, there's still something about the cooler weather that makes me want to listen to folk songs and acoustic guitars.
Enter Morgan Enos: 16-year-old boy wonder from Atascadero, CA with a warble that reminds me of very early Conor Oberst, set to the tune of one guitar and the occasional awesome harmonica riff, keyboard, or echoing drums (all played by Enos himself). There's something charming about songs like, "In Which St. Wolfgang Meets The Devil"; clocking in at just under 1 1/2 wonderfully lo-fi minutes, it still has all the tape hiss intact and sounds like a secret being sung to you over the phone.
You can check out 5 of the songs off of Lucky Stars for free at the Morgan Enos MySpace page. Start with "A Bird and A Wire" and soon you'll have another artist to add to your autumn playlist.
