North Carolina alt-country trio Mount Moriah's third album is packed with vivid imagery. One could spend an age exploring the themes here, with each piece of the puzzle finding more songwriting depth and beauty than imagined. Heather McEntire shows why she may be one of the most important wordsmiths living today. And it doesn't hurt that she has one of the purest voices either, with the arrangements turning other-worldly behind her.
Key Tracks: 'Calvander', 'Precita', 'Higher Mind', 'Davis Square'
