The Moor – Warm Winter

The Moor is a project born of love out of Erica Daking and Josiah Steinbrick’s Mt Washington basement. The duo began marrying Erica’s smoky vocals, minimal synth and washed out guitars back in 2008 and it’s been happily ever after ever since.

I can’t help but think how apropriately named this project is.  Many may find their music firmly rooted in brit-pop but I find their album somewhat disarming. When listening images of a dark hazy morning overlooking an alien landscape marked by fog just coming out of sleep seem to dance in your head and you can’t help but be sucked in.  Pick up their debut LP on iTunes via Dilettante.
