Bringing to mind other morose indie icons Elliott Smith and Murder By Death,¬†Daniel Morones‘ “He’s In The News Again” is a smart commentary on the epidemic of senseless shootings in America. Featuring a stand up bass, a string section, and a strummed mandolin, the song has strong folk vibes that sounds huge and layered underneath¬†Morones’ pleasantly hushed vocals. Fun fact – the non-acoustic version of the song features the talents of Dave Keuning (of The Killers fame).

Morones is offering his album for a “pay what you want” rate over on Bandcamp.
