Micah P Hinson – “Oh, Spaceman” – Listen

Idiosyncratic Americana troubadour Micah P Hinson returns with a new album Presents The Holy Strangers, out on Full Time Hobby on 8 September.  Oh, Spaceman is the first track made available from it – and it’s the weariest sounding song you’re ever likely to hear.

There is, perhaps, an explanation for the all pervading weariness and the feeling that Hinson hasn’t slept in a good long while – when talking about Oh, Spaceman Micah has said “It was the first song I wrote for my boy, Wiley Tex, after he was born, and the only song I played for about half a year after his birth. It is the only song where the melody and words came before sitting behind a guitar. Which is not a way I’ve ever written.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan’s music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That’s not much to ask, is it?
