How The Thing Sings

A 7 track acoustic blues album (34m 47s) — released September 19th 2011 on Editions Mego
Recorded Spring 2011 in the Living Room, San Francisco. Yet another essential cracking new set of songs from Bill Orcutt, showcasing a further development of his unique visceral acoustic style. The language that Orcutt uses looks familiar at first glance, but cut deeper and its myriad of twisted audio that's both full on and drenched in melancholy, usually in the same gasping breath. While a lot of it is the classic face melting style, some quieter segments counter balance on the title track as well the epic closer 'A Line From Ol'Man River' and 'Heaven Is Closed To Me Now'.
