I was stuck behind a snail of a driver the other day. With all the
construction that’s taking place on our streets right now, many roads
have been reduced to one lane, meaning that I couldn’t pass the
slowpoke driver for quite some time. And it’s not that this person was
driving badly. Just very slowly. Listening to Daniel Martin Moore’s
Stray Age feels very much like that same experience, because his music just
inches forward. The album doesn’t bother with variety of tempo, so all
of the songs can fit into one of two rate categories: snail or tortoise. And
Moore’s mellow voice acts as a lullaby, adding to the sleepy feel. His
voice also carries a world-weariness that sounds odd coming from someone as
young as Moore; one might expect that kind of vocal presentation from someone
20 years his senior. When the “The Hour of Sleep,” the
album’s last song, finally arrived, I was already prepared for just
that. V
