Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock, by Morgan Taylor

July 27, 2011

When he's not backing up Wilco members on their solo projects, singer-songwriter Morgan Taylor makes sparkling kids' music, drawing comparisons to adult artists from Bread to the Beatles. Taylor sings about characters like a frisky eel that dresses in a wardrobe of single socks ("Slim Gets in 'Em"). The tender pop ballad "Beehive," with timpani accents and vocal swells, suggests an outtake from the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.
