Micah P. Hinson – Micah P. Hinson and the Opera Circuit (2006)

Mojo – “Sophisticated and sublime folk”

On the full-length follow-up to his critically acclaimed “The Baby And The Satellite” EP, Hinson offers a substantiated account of misery and triumph, evoking translucent memories and physical struggle. During an ironically twisted period of heavy medication and pain brought on by recent back surgery, this release is the product of rallying above physical torment, facing proverbial closeted skeletons, and discovering eventual resolution through the power of euphoric connection.

A veritable reminder that progress through pain can be intimate, heartfelt, and epically necessary. For fans of Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens, Silver Jews, Smog.

Tracklisting

1. Seems Almost Impossible
2. Diggin A Grave
3. Jackeyed
4. It’s Been So Long
5. Drift Off To Sleep
6. Letter From Huntsville
7. She Don’t Own Me
8. My Time Wasted
9. Little Boys Dream
10. You’re Only Lonely
11. Don’t Leave Me Now!

Micah P Hinson – Micah P Hinson & The Gospel of Progress (2004)

Micah P Hinson – Micah P Hinson & The Gospel of Progress (2004)

At the age of 19, Micah met the widow of a notable rock star who was initially his muse, then his downfall. After forging prescriptions, he was sent to county jail, then found himself homeless and penniless.

During this “lost” period, he penned these songs. His twisted, dark tales of love and loss are matched only by a cracked vocal and songwriting that belies his mere 22 years.

This received glowing critical acclaim in the UK press where the record was released in 2004 on Sketchbook Records. For fans of Silver Jews, Bright Eyes, Mark Lanegan, and other gifted literate singer-songwriters.

He walks the fine line of heart on your sleeve lyrics and raw emotion, but does so in a way that never goes too far without you feeling he really means it. Repeated listens will render you helpless over its charm.

Quote:

A Texan singer-songwriter functions an auspicious line, one might think of Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, a million others who’ve tapped into astral folk and lo-fi cosmic-country-gospel.

The record sounds like it was recorded on the front porch of an old mansion in the deep south, when it was in fact recorded in an industrial warehouse behind safeways in chorlton-cum-hardy. Totally amazing.

Gruff vocals due to over indulgence in ciggies, lend a frail hue and wracked, feintly wrecked quality to proceedings. Produced by those omnivorous monkies’ the Earlies, Micah P Hinson fuses the alt.country open spaces of Bonnie “Prince” Billy at his saddest, with the orchestral minimalism of the Tindersticks, and the off centred non-conformism of early Lambchop.

The fact that micah is barely out of his teens and keeps company with supermodels, should only make hos world-weary delivery all the more startling. Big music – very highly recommended.

Tracklisting

1. Yourself Asleep Again
2. Beneath The Rose
3. Don’t You Forget (Part One And Two)
4. The Possibilities
5. As You Can See

Micah P. Hinson – The Baby and the Satellite (2005)

Micah P. Hinson – The Baby and the Satellite (2005)
Hinson’s first release for Jade Tree harkens back to a stripped-down, self-professed “lost” period for Texas’s critically acclaimed singer/songwriter. This EP animates the emptiness of back country roads and late teenage displacement. Hinson’s distinct brand of country-noir is delivered over hushed vocals and subdued guitars, shaded by fragments of Dylan’s storytelling and Bill Callahan’s (Smog) ability to tap into the darker emotions of real life. This is an endearing journey through Hinson’s fractured past, searching for signs of hope in the somber halls of a downtrodden Middle America.

Tracklisting

1. The Dreams You Left Behind
2. Wasted Away
3. The Leading Guy
4. Or Just Rearrange
5. For Your Eyes
6. The Last Charge Of Lt. Paul
7. The Day The Volume Won
8. The Dreams You Left Behind Reprise
9. The Baby And The Satellite

Big thanks to victory

Micah P. Hinson and the Red Empire Orchestra [2008]

On Lame 192CBR | 2008 | Folk

The new one from the Texas troubadour!

The new album Micah P Hinson And The Red Empire Orchestra, by gravelly voiced Texas songwriter Micah P. Hinson and his Red Empire Orchestra, is out 7/14 on Full Time Hobby. The first single, “When We Embraced,” showed up 6/2, but another track — in our opinion, the album’s standout — shows up for the first time in today’s Drop. We asked Hinson what inspired the song and, more specifically, “Who are the ghosts chattering down the hallway?” Hinson responded indirectly, but his honesty offers straightforward insight into the track.

Thanks for your interest in the song. I feel quite close to that particular one. As far as all the particular questions, I’ll need to apologize, as they are a bit too personal, and I wouldn’t feel comfortable answering them. As I said, I am quite close to the song, so I truly can’t find it within myself to break it down on such a personal level.

From the outside looking in though, I think a way to describe, or rather explain, the song is by looking at it from a “humanity”- esque point of view. I think a good amount of people would agree that sometimes in life they find themselves striving for, or chasing after, things they truly have no business being involved with, whether it endangers themselves or others. I think the song is about living a regretful life and stupidly asking themselves, a God, or the universe to not force them to reap the punishment or consequence of their actions.

I believe a lot of people want to get out of situations easily. People don’t want to face consequences, but facing and learning from consequences is the only way a man, woman, or child will learn how to grow up and be an honest and good human being. To me, that seems the purpose of life- to learn and understand compassion, empathy, love, and character.

I hope this answers your questions to a certain degree. It does. Take a listen to the new single “When We Embraced” at his MySpace.
