Two years in the making, Micah wrote and recorded his new album The Holy Strangers in Denison, Texas, incorporating ancient reel to reels, analogue keyboards, old Tascam and Yamaha desks, only entered the digital realm once pre-mastering took place. Split across two pieces of the vinyl, the 14 tracks of The Holy Strangers are at times sparse and haunting; at other times luscious, maybe even euphoric. From the Johnny Cash-style country single Lover’s Lane, to the spoken-word centerpiece Micah Book One,The Holy Strangers covers a lot of ground over the course of its hour long running time.
Micah describes the album as being a “modern folk opera.” Telling the story of a war time family, going from birth to love, to marriage and children, to war and betrayal, murder to suicide – spanning all of the strange and glorious places life can lead. We follow their story, we see their decisions, we see their faults and their beauty. We live with them, we die with them.
