Right Away, Great Captain – I Am Aware

Last week, Andy Hull released the third record / chapter by pen name Right Away, Great Captain, a songwriting tale began in ’06 on The Bitter End and on ’08’s The Eventually Home, about a sailor who “upon discovering his wife cheating on him with his brother, runs away to sea and gradually descends into a vengeful rage.”

 The Church of the Good Thief follows those up, with an intentionally solitary  and emotional sound of the crumbling world of said sailor.  “Both of the previous albums contained a lot of different settings, but my hope on this record was to have it sound like a man in a jail cell with just a guitar and a piano,” he says. “I wanted my voice to be used as a narrative during his isolation.”

Check out the single “I Am Aware,” and if that suits your fancy grab the album > The Church of the Good Thief

What comes out is 35 minutes of really good music.  Although you can hear the differences (or what seems to be differences) between songs written by Devine and Hull respectively,…
