Description

Micah P. Hinsons new album Presents The Holy Strangers is described by the artist as being a modern folk opera. Telling the story of a war time family, going from birth to love, to marriage and children, to war and betrayal, murder to suicide spanning all of the strange and glorious places life can lead. We follow their story, we see their decisions, we see their faults and their beauty. We live with them, we die with them. Two years in the making, Micah wrote and recorded The Holy Strangers in Denison, Texas, incorporating ancient reel to reels, analogue keyboards, old Tascam and Yamaha desks. The recording only entered the digital realm once pre-mastering took place. Split across two pieces of the vinyl, the 14 tracks which make up The Holy Strangers are at times sparse and haunting; at other times luscious, maybe even euphoric. From the Johnny Cash-style country single Lovers Lane, to the albums broad, spoken-word centrepiece Micah Book One, The Holy Strangers covers a lot of ground over the course of its hour long running time, appealing to both long-time fans and new ones alike.
