The Golden Age of Daniel Martin Moore

Daniel Martin Moore’s latest Jim James-produced album, Golden Age (Amazon & Spotify), is one that I’ve listened to more than any other in the last month. It’s not as sparse as his previous work that I love – his duo with Ben Sollee or the one with Joan Shelley, and certainly not his gospel song interpretation album – but this one is still just as gorgeous. James was able to deliver a new sound up without muddying the vocal clarity that Moore fans appreciate. It’s a new favorite.

But Moore performed a stripped down version of the album’s title track in a new Lost River Session posted earlier this week by WKU (PBS) in Bowling Green. With all due respect going to Mr. James, I like this rendition more than the album recording.

Check out the film below. NYC can catch Moore live at the Mercury Lounge on November 20th.

Creation would stumble, unable to be more clear
The days we long for are here
It’s our Golden Age, our Golden Age
It’s our Golden Age, our Golden Age is here
