We’ve highlighted North Carloina based band, Mount Moriah, before on The Passerby and I’d like to share their new album, Miracle Temple, with you.
You can stream the whole album for a limited time here.
I would categorize the album as Americana, Alt-Country, or Country Rock. At times the album is more upbeat and feels like 50’s rock and at other times the drum beat is slow and steady and the guitar and pedal steel give it that twang, which I love.
I think I Built A Town is my favorite track so far. This song has a Patti Griffin or Lucinda Williams feel to it – The kind of song you might expect to hear when you’re sitting down for a late night coffee and a slice of pie at a diner in the middle of nowhere USA. Listen to a couple songs, or the whole album (it’s worth it!) and post your comments below.
It doesn’t appear they’ll be coming to Minnesota anytime soon – but if you want to skip work Monday you could head down to Chicago and catch their show at Schuba’s!
