This is the first Micah P Hinson album made without the use of his arms. He had a horrid van accident in Spain and so for this album sent some demos he’d been working on to some people around the world whilst he was in recovery. He then did some recording in Spain with local musicians in order to finish the album off.
Opener ‘How Are You Just a Dream?’ is a bit of a bar-room shambles. A raucous effort it suffers from some sloppy singing and even sloppier playing. That seems to have got it all out of their system though as plenty of the other tracks are the lo-fi candle lit country-ish things you may expect from a cursory glance at his previous work. ‘The One to Save You Now’ is all brushed drums, undone bow ties and whiskey glass clinks whilst ‘Songs of the USSR’ is a quite beautiful dreamy thing recalling Tom Waits. Hinson has a lovely chocolate voice which is exemplified on ‘Love Wait for Me’ which is a quite lovely old timey effort with hints of Johnny Cash and Lambchop.
There are some sweet moments on the record but its a mixed bag as you may expect. The best track comes right at the end ‘A Million Light Years’ which is just Hinson and a stuttering guitar, his voice really stands out and finally I’m connecting with this record.
