Misericordia (2011)

Recorded on an analog Tascam 4 track by night, in between a 40 hour work week and raising a 4 month old daughter with his wife Megan. For the mastered (louder) version, please check out the music at htpp://music.mikehotter.com Review excerpt: 'The ten-song album runs the gamut from the opening instrumental guitar freakout of “Sleep-Stealer” to the closing a cappella “Acapella (aka To White Tara),” complete with a bit of beat-boxing. Our personal faves? The shimmering, reverb-drenched “Ring These Bells” and the Chris Whitley-like neo-blues of “Sunshine Army.” ' - from review by Greg Haymes on http://www.nippertown.com
