    The Heathen Apostles' debut release, Boot Hill Hymnal, seeks to answer a question posed long ago by Blind Willie Johnson- just what is the soul of a man? (...Or, as the case may be here, a woman with a thousand-yard stare.) The resulting collection of songs is complex, catchy, and wholly cohesive to the Apostles' ghost town.

    Featuring Mather Louth (Radio Noir) and Chopper Franklin (The Cramps), Boot Hill Hymnal captures the essence of the HEATHEN APOSTLES modus operandi: Southern gothic imagery surrounded by haunting, minor-chord banjo, mandolin and violin melodies, helmed by the voice of an evocative Indigo child, unstuck in time.

That is one hell of a lineup. ... more
