|It's an underground music story for sure ... straight out of the music mecca of Chapel Hill, NC, Heather McEntire (Bellafea) and Jenks Miller (Horseback) got together as Mount Moriah as way to escape the trappings of their current bands. The post-punk Bellafea and psych metal of Horseback naturally led to ... the combination of rock and folk music. It's a natural progression, right? Check out how it ended up in the player below with a preview of the new album.
Mount Moriah will skip the traditional immediate 7" single release and get on with a full length album on Merge Records on Oct. 2, and quickly follow up on that with another full length album next year. Indie music never sleeps ... and never rusts or fades away. It's been a busy week for india label signings, Merge Records also announced signings for William Tyler and Reigning Sound and Dead Oceans signed Night Beds.
