Album Review: The Damaged Hearing Sessions
Shawnee, OK’s hardcore troubadour has returned with his latest album The Damaged Hearing Sessions. The double record was recorded live in the studios of KRFC in Fort Collins, CO by former Okie Lewis Fowler and includes one disc of originals and one of covers. The record is a simple one—Christophe with his acoustic guitar—but the result is a dark and brooding collection that touches on everything from love to suicide to life on the road to drinking to death (and covers of classics by the likes of Husker Du and Social Distortion, among others).
With The Damaged Hearing Sessions, Christophe has again done what he does so well and produced an album of dark outlaw country songs that conjure images and moods of the classic country of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings and the classic horror films of the 1950s. If you like your country dark and at times scary, then Christophe Murdock is your man.
