Micah P. Hinson
micah p hinson & the nothing
one of the unluckiest men alive revisits a wonderful collection of songs he wrote before a terrible van accident he had on the Spanish highway in 2011 & he's sounding more like johnny cash then ever.
Unsure if or when his arms would ever work properly again, Micah began listening to demos he made before he went on that Spanish trip. The songs took a different light & with the help of his friends The Twilight Sad, his Belgium Quartet & his Texan side-kick, T. Nicholas Phelps, he set about creating a record without the use of his arms. he then headed back to spain & over the course of 2 weeks with Fernando 'Mac', he forged this incredible new record with an astounding array of local musicians, sitting behind the trap set, standing beside the upright bass, holding a viola, or tumbling away the tympani. for fans of sun kil moon, bill callahan & other miserable but loveable doommeisters. "He has always had a knack for creating an almost atmospheric cage around his songs...transforming a painful narrative into songs full of angst, woe & beauty is a craft that Hinson has mastered" - dis.
