ALBUM OF THE MONTH: DANIEL MARTIN MOORE "STRAY AGE"
January 22 2009
i saw Daniel Martin Moore open for Great Lake Swimmers in Brooklyn a few weeks ago. i only caught the last 3 songs of their set, but i enjoyed it enough to buy the CD after the gig. little did i know what i heard at the show was only a shadow of the greatness that i was about to experience on the CD.
DMM writes very honest, simple, gentle modern folk music. and he's a friendly and gracious person as well. it doesn't hurt that his debut cd "stray age" (sub pop) was produced by Joe Chiccarelli and mastered by Bob Ludwig. the production is beautiful.
a great cd cover with a really nicely designed booklet as well.
definitely check it out.
