Recommended Song: Ben Morey & The Eyes – New Life

Ben Morey & The Eyes - Mt. Doom

Ben Morey & The Eyes – Mt. Doom

For fans of the Rochester, NY based indie pop band Howlo, the announcement of a Ben Morey solo album is big news. Known primarily for punchy indie rock, Mt. Doom finds Morey exploring more of a cosmic country sound. Featuring the efforts of nearly 30 members of the Rochester indie rock community, including turns from members of Pleistocene, Green Dreams, Maybird, Northern Spies, and of course, Howlo – Mt. Doom is a bold and lush soon to be classic.

To celebrate the release, Visions of the Unexcused was granted an exclusive stream of the tune “New Life” – which finds Morey’s folk sound enhanced by ghostly steel guitar & mournful back-up harmonies.
