If you’re a fan of The Avett Brothers or Iron and Wine, I highly recommend checking out Steve Marino’s music. He records independently under the name Moor Hound, and his folksy music is some of the best stuff I’ve heard this year. It all has a really genuine vibe, and if you were bummed after realizing Sufjan’s new album contains exactly zero songs with banjos in it, you’re in luck.
Moor Hound’s debut album, Love In My Jaws, released this month, and you can grab a free copy on MusicFloss or Bandcamp. A few of my favorite tracks on the album include “Virginia,” “Such A Weight,”"Love in My Jaws,” “Sleeping in, and “Through A Fence.”
Marino is based out of Orlando, Florida and is only 21 years old. He makes music on the side of working a full-time job as a “computer guy” at a car dealership. I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on him.
