Writing novellas, beloved Swannanoa Say the words just chose ya Daughter of a doctor, But you can’t fix this part of The plot that you gave up When we were children Nothing yet determined We were empty chapters Maps not filled in No fears or tethers A pair of young wayfarers You made it all seem clearer You’re not a coward, either Delicate rebel, Brilliant and feral, Show me every vowel Black Mountain basements Keep you from doorsteps Address the unrest When we were children Nothing yet determined We were empty chapters Maps not filled in No key is a ___ for us aging archivists I made sense of the madness With a broken compass Will another let it bring us light? Is there only fiction in the fall? Will another let it bring us light? Is there only fiction in the fall? Will another let it bring us light? Is there only fiction in the fall? Will another let it bring us light? Is there only fiction in the fall?

Swannanoa is a shamanically hypnotic song. Must be the drum line but could also be the first line, “Writing novellas, beloved, say the words just chose you, “daughter of a doctor” This is my favorite selection from Miracle Temple as it triggers the urge to throw off my best James Morrison snakeline shamanic shuffle. Let me know if you feel the same.

Mount Moriah Band

What better band out there to represent our town and state than Mount Moriah? I fell in love with this band’s creative output on the first listen. An honorable friend gifted me, Mount Moriah’s first Merge Media release, Miracle Temple. The perfect accompaniment for a slow drive to the beach cd if ever there was one.

Those merry few who caught the cut short, back-to-back, rained out concerts at Sarah Duke Gardens outdoor music series this past summer may remember this great track, Calavander. A brilliant resonant reference to the Carteret County line in this song conjures up so many joyful beach visits for the Durham Cool team.

Mount Moriah (band), Durham Merge Records recording artist, homecoming performance at Cat’s Cradle was too short for me (1.5 hours) but bursting with brilliance and Southern rock energy. The band was fighting through tour bus influenza. If this Durham, NC band is new to you watch the video below to get a taste of how great this original Merge record artist sounds. Heather McEntire, lead singer/songwriter is a potent creative force. Presence and Source, divine force.

Calvander sign
Calvander Mount Moriah Under the Calvander sign Hitched a ride to the Carteret county line Down on my knees by the bogue bank tide Prayed to something for some kind Any kind of light Inner banks all the way east Followed the tracks out past the fishery I swear to God tonight Those Jacksonville boys ain’t gonna find Sweet Company Carry on and on and on on With your cosmic reach Newport river whispered fate Spells cast with every crashing wave Neon lines and a new name Held up my palm and I offered up my face Blue heart and a dark mind Looking for any kind some kind of sign I swear to God tonight Those Jacksonville boys ain’t gonna find Sweet Company … Keep me gentle and keep me easy Four lines of mounted mercury Keep me gentle and keep me easy Four lines of mounted mercury Keep me gentle and keep me easy Four lines of mounted mercury Keep me gentle and keep me easy Four lines of mounted mercury Under the calvander sign Hitched a ride to the Carteret county line Down on my knees by the bogue bank tide Prayed to something for some kind Any kind of light Inner banks all the way east Followed the tracks out past the fishery I swear to God tonight Those Jacksonville boys ain’t gonna find Sweet Company Carry on and on and on on With your cosmic reach Source: Musixmatch

Mount Moriah – Lament

Hueism Pictures (http://hueismpictures.com/​) Director: Habib Yazdi Director of Photography: Andrew Synowiez Gaffer: Alex Maness Production Stills: Lalitree Darnielle

If this will be
Anything
Then let it be
Over
Because the heart can’t keep
Trying
To love something
It doesn’t
If this will be
Anything
Then let it be a
Disaster
A mouthful of bees
Couldn’t stop me
From whispering,
I don’t know you.
But if scars could sing
About the permanent things
They’d say it’s damaged
But it was something.
If this will be anything
Then let it be over

Lament

A great video, a familiar Durham NC setting for an incredible song.   The line “a mouthful of bees could not stop me from whispering “I don’t know you”.  Quite the rhyming sequence. Consider for just a shutdown moment, the prospect of a mouthful of stirring bees.  Next,  If stars could sing about the permanent things, they would sing, “It was damaged but it was something”.

I was a saint, I wed the breaking dawn
Bricks met neatly, and the doors stayed closed
Beholden to only haunt the familiar womb
Master garden paths
Never lost, never lost, never lose

Sullen soothsayer, I held the tea leaves close
I nailed the good book onto every beadboard post
I kept the hemlocks groomed, owned the beam, and mote
Free will, follow me
Never lost, never lost, never lose

If fearness shakes up your holy water
Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise
I’ve seen the darkness take you down with it, mama
Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise
Let it rise

I was a saint, I wed the breaking dawn
I kept the kettle on, shines the savior’s throne
Beholden to only haunt the familiar womb
Master garden paths
Never lost, never lost, never lose

If fearness shakes up your holy water
Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise
I’ve seen the darkness take you down with it, mama
Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise
Let it rise

If fearness shakes up your holy water
Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise
Let it rise
I’ve seen the darkness take you down with it, mama
Let it rise

DISTINCTLY BRILLIANT

Blessed O Blessed,
Look at all those pretty dresses
We’re in the glass chapel with all of the doves,
Crying into the napkins.

Take a Seven & Seven,
Hand me one more until it’s lifted.
We waded into the healing spring,
But nothing happened.

Are you hardened?
Can you pardon the very hand
That draws a line into the sand?

Those hard mark-making women,
They will take all they are given.
The orange sun slipped into the ridge.
And all was silent.

Lights out at Crescent,
Let me head back on to Memphis.
J-23, BROTHER promise me
My name is up next.

Are you hardened?
Can you pardon the very hand?
That draws a line into the sand?
