Singer-songwriter Mark Mulcahy is our guest tomorrow. He joins the studio not only for an interview, but also to also play a few of his songs.
The novelist Rick Moody describes Mulcahy as “A remarkable songwriter” and called his new album “Among the very best records of 2013.” In an article in Salon, Moody wrote: “The recording bristles with wordplay, with remarkably inventive lyrical turns, contains some of the best singing by a musician known as a singer’s singer, is full of despair and provocation, and rocks harder than almost anything that has come out this year. Considering the context, the result is explicably full of loss, from the first song to the last.”
The context Moody is referring to, is the death of Mulcahy’s wife in 2008. His most recent album, “Dear Mark J. Mulcahy, I Love You,” is the first since she passed away.
"She Makes The World Turn Backwards" is one of the songs from his latest album.
