“Certain Strangers” (by Short Hand)
Attila is a half an hour of folk-rock charged with delta wonk. Short Hand plays like a wild man on these twelve tracks. The instrumentation is raw, most striking his voice, which he wields like a voodoo stick to fling swamp mud at a rock 'n' roll sky. Thematically, the song cycle is just as solid and forceful, taking up subjects like self-assurance and existential fearlessness and evoking giants of history like Attila the Hun and Muhammad Ali that reverberate even through the "softer" songs.
