✹   Micah lays down some fine gothic country blues for the wee small hours. Rootsy and mournful. A collection of tunes that will have admirers of Mark Lanegan or Swans’ Michael Gira hitting the play button again and again.
Editorial Reviews:
✹   Micah P. Hinson is an old fashioned trouble man who fell prey to drugs and loose women, winding up homeless, destitute and incarcerated by the time most of his peers were filling out college applications. Music was his savior, and since his 2003 debut, he s pieced together a life for himself in his sleepy hometown of Abilene, TX. Recorded in 24 hours somewhere in east Texas, the new album is the follow up to last year's universally~lauded, Micah P. Hinson Presents the Holy Strangers.

Review
By Guy Oddy. Monday, 22 October 2018; Score: ***½
✹   It would seem that Micah P Hinson is a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He also gives the impression of a man who could make Willie Nelson seem like a spring chicken, with his deep, rasping singing voice, even if he is yet to exit his thirties. Twinned with his rootsy and mournful tunes, however, Micah’s presence is a fine accompaniment in the early hours, on an album whose quality doesn’t once betray that it was recorded in a single 24 hour stretch.
✹   When I Shoot at You with Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is not only one of the finest album titles so far in 2018, it is also a disc that contains more than its fair share of similarly entertainingly~named songs. Opening with “I Am Looking for the Truth, Not a Knife in the Back”, the Texas born troubadour starts as he means to go on, in a brooding and downtempo manner. He occasionally picks up the tempo, particularly on “Small Spaces” and the almost danceable “The Sleep Of The Damned”, but in the main, this is a collection of tunes that will have admirers of artists such as grunge bluesman Mark Lanegan and Swans’ Michael Gira’s solo work hitting the play button again and again. That said, “Fuck Your Wisdom” and “My Blood Will Call Out to You from the Ground” are not the misery~fests that their titles suggest, even if they do betray a certain mournful regret.
✹   The final track, “The Skulls of Christ”, takes a different tack with insistent but half~heard sampled voices that finally fade out in an eddy of feedback, before an eerie choir brings things to a conclusion. Indeed, When I Shoot at You... may be best saved for certain moods, but when you’re in the right frame of mind, it’s just the ticket. ✹   https://theartsdesk.com/
About:
✹   „There is a cathedral in the town of Santiago de Compostela,“ explains Micah. „It is said to be the final resting place of St. James. Going back through history, pilgrims have been trekking to, and from, the cathedral for years, wanting to find peace, solace, and hope in their steps along the walk from France into Spain within the ancient Basque Country. Once inside the grand doors of this cathedral is a statue. A man named Master Mateo took it upon himself to carve it from stone in the 12th century. It is of St. James, surrounded by 24 musicians seemingly trapped in stone of the ages their ancient instruments in hand: some tuning, some looking, some simply sitting and waiting. They have been waiting patiently for over 800 years waiting for St. James to lift his hands and begin to conduct them. They are The Musicians of The Apocalypse. They will bring Hell and Heaven to Earth. They will bring The Apocalypse.“
✹   Anyone associated in any way with the story of Micah P. Hinson will surely know that there have been several times in his life where the idea of an Apocalypse has occurred a death and rebirth whether that was a severe back injury, a violent road accident, the temporary death of his arms, a love for drugs, a hate of drugs, time spent behind bars or within rooms containing mentally~challenged people, time spent behind closed doors with bizarre characters of all shapes and sizes. The possibilities are endless. In looking back, one could easily say that without these certain deaths, there would certainly be no rebirths.
✹   With this, back in his home state of Texas, he began reaching out to the musicians that had played an important role in his musical upbringing the people that had shown him a new way to think, a new way to play, a new way to master life and death. Luckily, he was able to draw many of these people together in an undisclosed location in East Texas the beginning of April 2018. Gathering together, he and the musicians spent a few frantic days going over the songs Micah had written in just a matter of weeks looking at different ways to approach each song which instruments?  what feel?  piecing together a puzzle without seeing the picture.
✹   Miraculously, within one day one 24 hour period these tireless musicians, with Micah at the helm, recorded all the songs, instruments and tracks that would make up „When I Shoot At You With Arrows...“ In a beautiful move, all the Texas musicians decided wholeheartedly that they too, just like the musicians carved into stone several thousand miles away, would go unnamed letting their instruments speak volumes, without having their earthly names attached to such a piece.
✹   There are many in this world that do not believe in The Apocalypse. There are many in this world that do believe in The Apocalypse. Yet, even with this, many would easily agree that life is made up of many starts and stops, many deaths, many rebirths physically and spiritually. It is the inevitable way of the human condition.
✹   Without beginnings there would be no end. With no ending there would be no beginnings.
✹   This is Micah P. Hinson finding a new beginning.
