by Mount Moriah
Released: Feb 2013
Label: Merge Records
With sure footing in both indie-folk and alt-country realms, North Carolina's Mount Moriah will hit a soft spot for all who enjoy a good wallow. Heather McEntire's voice rings with a haunting tone that conjures up sepia tone images of tumbleweeds and Dust Bowl hardships with as much depressing depth as a Steinbeck novel. "Union Street Bridge" is a dark and brooding "Ode to Billie Joe" for the new millennium; "Younger Days" yearns for the return of a loved one who left town, drawn to the big city lights. None are what you'd call "feel-good" songs -- unless you feel good moping.
