Ben Trickey wowed the pants off of me with his release Rising Waters a few years ago. Ben's been quiet since then but he hasn't been silent. Instead of a full-length, Trickey's been releasing a...trickle...of 7"s and live albums since. Alabama, released today, is the last in the series.
Obviously, this is a short chunk of music but it's intense. Trickey's emotionally resonant tremble gives urgency to the lush imagery in his lyrics. This isn't poetry and it's not some sad dude singing about songs. It occupies that magical space in between.
