Right Away, Great Captain! is the folky/acoustic brain child of Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull. He will be hitting The Space on July 18th, along with The Dear Hunter's Casey Crescenzo and Harrison Hudson.
The Church of The Good Theif was released earlier this month and is Hull's third album under RAGC. Previous albums include 2007's The Bitter End and 2008's The Eventually Home. The Church of The Good Theif is packed with haunting vocals by Hull along with dark undertones that are reflected in the entire album. It is mininmalistic and sombre raining true to the simple genius of Hull. Hull successfully conveys the conflicted emotions of the protaganist in the album cleverly touching upon lost love, betrayal, death, and isolation.
The Church of The Good Theif is the continuation and the finale of The Bitter End and The Eventually Home in which we are introduced to the protaganist, a 17th century sailor who catches his wife in bed with his brother. In this album we enter the psyche of the sailor. The songs are strategically placed to tell a story about the sailor, but also, the listener can interpret such lyrics in each song to both a personal way and the story invented by Hull.
Check out Rotton Black Root, Fur Stop Caring, and I Wait For You.
I'm unbelievably excited to see all three acts and I am anxiously waiting for an awesome performance by Hull, Hudson, and Crescenzo.
Come see the show on Wednesday, July 18th at The Space in Hamden, CT!
