There’s a sense of comfort afforded to those who reside behind distortion; an aggressive wash that forgives imperfections and tempers confession. The decision to unveil promises a venture laden with sweeping vulnerability; the exposure swells in your throat and twists deep between organs until suddenly the fear reduces to categorical relief. “Miracle Temple Holiness” is just one example of Mount Moriah’s willingness for honesty; beautifully tense and tortured, this song rises and falls with tangible weight.
This session is the first of four, filmed in partnership with Rdio during SXSW. Visit Rdio to hear the exclusive four-song-session featuring “Miracle Temple Holiness” and other tracks performed that day, or stream it in full below.
