Rockabilly album, but then silence prevails in the world of the man from Memphis, Tennessee named Micah P. Hinson. He came from a strictly religious family and very early on began to see music as a kind of liberation from his fundamentalist parental home. From 2004 he released three albums which were very well recorded in the American indie scene. Hinson had already finished writing the songs on his fourth album when he had a bad car accident and couldn't move his arms anymore. He started sending demos to different musicians all over the world, and they enriched the recordings with their playing. In the end he produced this album in Spain with the help of local musicians and these tapes. A varied, intelligent, sometimes very melancholic album, but always with a flash of irony reminiscent of Vic Chesnutt. And a testimony of a great will.
