Lonnie Holley - Mith 2xLP
Lonnie Holley - Mith
68-year-old Alabaman Lonnie "The Sand Man" Holley, first known for his folk art sculptures and more recently for his similarly sprawling and free form spiritual/mystical music, returns with his first album in several years. Mith is his most full bodied work to date in terms of both sonics and themes, expanding his trademark Rhodes improvisations with additional instrumentation and trying to find his footing as a suspect / dust speck in a fucked up America. This is seriously powerful music and a paragraph in an email newsletter isn't going to do it justice.
