What does it mean when a predominantly solo artist goes solo? For Jenks Miller (also a member of Mount Moriah), it means he's using his given name instead of Horseback for his latest release, Spirit Signal. The new LP, due on September 3 via Northern Spy, delves into drone, ambient and experimentalism across its six tracks, the title track of which is streaming below. Preorder your copy.

Horseback at The Studio at Webster Hall (more by Markus Shaffer)
Fans of the dark arts might do a double take on Mount Moriah when they hit the road for a string of dates with fellow NC'ers The Rosebuds. That's because guitarist/evil genius Jenks Miller of Horseback is behind the six-string of this alt-country/americana band, playing tunes that definitely do not resemble his other personae. Nevertheless, the band which features the heartfelt vocals of Bellafea's Heather McEntire, cranks out tuneful and gorgeous melodies on their self-titled LP out now via Holiday For Quince. Look for guest appearances from members of Megafaun, Gayngs, St. Vincent, Bowerbirds, Dean & Britta, and many others on this Brian Paulson (Beck, Wilco) produced LP which is streaming below.
Mount Moriah's tour hits NYC twice, first on 10/12 at Bowery Ballroom as part of their string of dates with The Rosebuds and again at Southpaw on 10/14. Tickets for Bowery Ballroom are still available (no tickets or even a listing for Southpaw yet). All dates are listed below.
Oh and speaking of Megafaun, don't forget they have a new album out and dates coming up too.
