Mount Moriah is forging a new visceral Southern sound that is as modern as it is traditional.

Heather McEntire and Jenks Miller form the core of the North Carolina-based quartet. Both have been integral to the Chapel Hill, N.C. music community for some time now, having performed in various groups there and together founding the Holidays for Quince label, which focuses on releasing progressive sounds from bands in and around their hometown.

In the context of Mount Moriah, their musical instincts have found perfect compliments in each other. McEntire's expressive voice carries these impressionistic songs, the melodies of which are suspended from Miller's sparse but melodic guitar lines. Together they dance, and are bolstered by Casey Toll's bass work and -- in this recording, filling a rotating role -- the drumming of Megafaun's Joe Westerlund.

For this Live at KDHX session, Mount Moriah performed four songs from its sophomore release, "Miracle Temple." The record is a more confident, weightier counterpart to the band's strong self-titled debut.
