micah huang - primitivism

micah huang is an LA based musician. his album 'primitivism' is an exploration of mystical and musical roots of american folk traditions. it includes a few well worn traditionals ('freight train' and 'trouble in mind', actually two of my favorite songs ever), along with some improvised songs in traditional modes.

these live voice and guitar performances are recorded in a very raw manner, the rough country blues style finger picking at times almost fading into the ambient haze, in a way that's reminiscent of recordings from the 20's and 30's, the sources from which this material was mined. micah is also possessed of a great voice to interpret this music. highly recommended.
