EDITORS’ NOTES

Right from the get-go, this Mexican indie singer/songwriter beckons us to go deeper into her Baja world with the heady, rolling drums and jangling guitars of “Un Beso.” Morrison’s dreamy voice lures us in further among the sparse pop space of “Flor Que Nunca Fui,” before rich strings add a soft touch to rock tunes like “Azúcar Morena” and “Tú Atacas” and layers of harmonies develop into a crescendo of ecstatic release on “No Vuelvo Jamás.” But it’s the eerie wavering keyboard and drum echoes of “Yo Vivo para Ti” that linger the longest.

TITLE TIME

About Carla Morrison

Raised on a diet of Patsy Cline and José Alfredo Jiménez in Tecate, Baja, California, Latin Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/indie pop singer Carla Morrison played in numerous rock bands before striking out on her own in 2009 with her debut EP Aprendiendo a Aprender. A deluxe edition of the EP followed one year later, along with her debut full-length Mientras Tú Dormías..., produced by Natalia Lafourcade. Another EP, Jugando en Serio, appeared in 2011, leading the way for her second studio album, Déjenme Llorar, in 2012. The album went gold in Mexico, and earned a pair of Latin Grammys. The inevitable deluxe edition of Déjenme Llorar was released in 2014, and Morrison debuted a new single in September 2015, "Un Beso," in anticipation of the release of her third studio long-player, Amor Supremo, later that October. Amor Supremo Desnudo, an all-acoustic version of her prior outing, followed in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger
