Below is the video for "In the Cool of the Day," the title track of Northern Kentucky singer/songwriter Daniel Martin Moore's latest album for Sub Pop Records, which was released Jan. 18. Moore performs a free in-store concert Saturday at Shake It Records in Northside in support of the new release. Music starts at 7 p.m.  —-

With songs based on old Folk Gospel tunes, In the Cool of the Day, Moore's third release through Sub Pop, has scored some strong reviews so far. Paste said the album's "folk gospel tunes evoke images of revivals, campfire nights, harvest moons and long, lazy days. Relying mostly on banjos, organs, violins and pianos, the album is uplifting without proselytizing or feeling preachy." Pitchfork gave the album a "7.7" and called it "a very warm, very welcoming entry point for anyone interested in the gospel tradition. Though this album doesn't remain entirely faithful to the original source material's every layer, it does stay true to the feeling behind that music. That's a very special thing."

The video for the album's title song (written by a fellow Kentuckian, legendary Folk singer/songwriter/dulcimer player Jean Ritchie) was directed by Kevin Bayer, a local videographer who also plays drums in the Electronica duo You, You're Awesome.
