Album: Mount Moriah, Miracle Temple (Merge)

  • @simmyrichman

If Mount Moriah's Heather McEntire were a contestant on a TV talent show, she'd get this vote within half a second of opening her mouth.

Sometimes you just know. Big Southern gospel-country-soul with guitars to the front in an ultimately futile attempt to match that voice and everything else just there to not get in the way. Shades of Tammy and maybe even a touch of Chrissie Hynde. Proper, stop-you-in-your-tracks talent with the occasional song to match.
