Daniel Martin Moore’s new single “Dark Road” is a cooling breath of those rare-gem style of songs which remind us grandeur can exist within simplicity; less does not always mean boring. Adhering to his Appalachian-daydreamer style Moore tosses us a billowy, empty-jug rhythm that when swirled with lyrics of uncluttered beauty makes the notion of better days ahead less focused on the despairing and more of an idea we can not only hope for but actually believe in. This tune is a perfect post-holiday pick me up with a sweetly accessible theme and an unabashedly charming spirit. One soothing taste increases our anticipation for the album entire, In the Cool of the Day, set to be released in January 2011.
