CD Reviews for Pandemonium
Ear to the Ground
November 1st, 2015 "Moors & McCumber are seasoned veteran songwriters. From the outset of their latest album Pandemonium, it is evident that these talented songwriters have been at it for a while. The maturity in their voices, the ease of their songs, and the overall feeling..." [more...]

The folk revival has been running rampant across America right now. Some of it’s hot and some of it’s not, just like any genre that experiences a resurrection long after its golden era. Along comes Moors and McCumber, a pair of Midwesterners who are rabid to do the genre justice, and justice they do it across the twelve tracks of Pandemonium, an album chockfull of wistful multi-instrumentalism, Appalachian vocal harmonies and songwriting straight from the heart.

March 27th, 2015 Pandemonium is without a doubt one of the year’s best records. In a world crowded with pop, radio rock, rap and techno, honest to God songwriters are hard to come by. Moors and McCumber are taking the movement back for all of the greats who toiled away to see their hard work usurped by digestible pop. No music fan should miss this masterpiece.

"this record is entertaining from the first song to the last. No filler here, each track is a display of true musicianship as you’ll hear several unconventional instruments like accordion, cello, banjo and many more. Kort and James switch it up with the instruments creating massive melodies. Their voices are magnificent and harmonize beautifully. Perhaps there’s no shortage of singer/songwriter duos, but Pandemonium proves that Moor and McCumber are in a league of their own."

For me personally one of the most pleasant surprises of the past weeks, the American duo Moors & McCumber.
"I know from personal experience the magic of finding that perfect musical partner. James and Kort complete each other...they fill in each others blanks and that makes for really really great music" Gary Louris - The Jayhawks
