Washing over you like some auditory realization of a Howard Finster painting, we give you this essential 1977 album Long Journey by Michael Hurley! Sporting 180 gram vinyl housed in an old school tip-on jacket including faithfully reproduced original artwork by Michael Hurley, this album is fully re-mastered and sounds better than ever. Part two in our reissue series of Hurley’s albums on Rounder Records!
Tracing the lineage and citing the fore-bearers of the New Weird America, one can’t help but mention the music of bizarre folk singer/guitarist/artist Michael Hurley. If you haven’t been following his career since the 1970’s (when he was collaborating with the likes of the Holy Modal Rounders and Jesse Colin Young) then you probably discovered him in the past couple of years via Devendra Banhart’s & Andy Cabic’s label Gnomonsong, who have released Hurley’s recent recordings.
