Album Review: Micah P Hinson - '...And The Pioneer Saboteurs' (Full Time Hobby)

A frustratingly unfocused listen from a fine artist

Album Review: Micah P Hinson - '...And The Pioneer Saboteurs' (Full Time Hobby)

6 / 10 The world is running away from [b]Micah P Hinson[/b]. Something of a husky country prodigy on his 2004 debut, now he’s a 20-something Texan bwoy alarmed and confused by the hand-basket ride his country is taking to Hell. The untethered havoc of this fourth album is designed to reflect these disorientating times and, sure enough, it sounds like [b]Band Of Horses[/b] breaking out of their holding pen and roaming randomly across wide open prairies – the Big Music untamed. However, other than the fantastically chaotic [b]‘Watcher, Tell Us Of The Night’[/b] ushering in a rallying final quarter, it makes for a frustratingly unfocused listen from a fine artist lost in his own magnificent noises.
