Signed to Subpop, Daniel Martin Moore will release his second full-length of country folk gospel In The Cool Of The Day, on January 21st but the label posted a stream on Soundcloud for us all to listen to now. Here’s some more info on the album:
In the Cool of the Day all started with an old piano, situated in the heart of Cincinnati’s WVXU studios. What had been scheduled to be a routine interview and in-studio performance turned into otherworldly inspiration when Moore sat down and plunked away at the old 9-foot Steinway, once used as the main instrument by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. With the help of longtime friend and drummer Daniel Joseph Dorff, Moore has given us a ‘spiritual’ album of time-tested, family gospel favorites remembered from growing up and reinterpreted here, with a few new tunes of his own in the same vein.
