Previous (New Low Country Hill Album)
Saturday, January 24, 2015
Low Country Hill, the new musical project from Hamilton's Paul Hogeterp, exploded on the scene with an exquisite b. With an atmospheric soundscape, well-crafted lyrics, and Paul's striking vocals, the album rises well above the usual, predictable alt-folk.
It's low-key approach works well with the introspective, contemplative feel of the whole project. The listener can explore the artistry of the many layers and textures contained within. You'll definitely want multiple listens on this one.
Produced by Dave King and with appearance by the great Bill Dillon and Pat Sansone of Wilco, this album is essential to anyone who appreciates original, unique music.
You can pick up a physical CD at Low Country Hill's live shows or through the website, It can also be downloaded using Bandcamp, iTunes, or eMusic.
