I post about a song a day. Recently I have been coming across some really great music that I just haven’t had the chance to post so I file it away in a playlist on my Spotify and Grooveshark accounts called “2011.” I would go into great detail as to why certain music is placed in that playlist but it’s very intricate and complicated and I just don’t have all day to explain it.
Anyways, I was going through it and came across Mount Moriah and thought about the post I wrote about them a while back only to find out that post never was. You see brilliant readers (thanks Joe Posnanski) there’s just not enough time in the day.
I’m sure by now you’ve figured I’m making poor excuses for not posting about Mount Moriah and their single “Lament” sooner. We may be the last music blog on the planet to post about this band and their strong self titled debut album that has roots straight out of High Fidelity. They met at a record store and Jenks Miller had the intention of producing Heather McEntire’s solo project. Then that just never happened and they recorded together.
When I tell you that this North Carolina duo has a background in art, post-punk, and heavy metal you probably have a pretty good idea of what they sound like.
You don’t. But respectively you we’re also probably smart enough to figure out I was setting you up two sentences ago just to have that smart-ass remark. My apologies. I shall make up for it with both the video and soundcloud for “Lament” followed by their bandcamp page. Listen away.
