Hang Me, Oh Hang Me


No Video


The second full-length release Hang Me, Oh Hang Me, takes a different approach from the self-titled release, with intricate arrangements, more substantial production and diverse instrumentation. Boasting songs from 3 different songwriters as well as pedal steel, organ, acoustic guitar, banjo and mandolin it is the perfect contrast the first record, taking most of the winter and spring of 2006/2007 to finish while the first record was recorded in one day. The bands emphasis has always been on songwriting, a feature which can be heard on either record as well as live in the many songs which have yet to be (and may never be) recorded. "Hang Me, oh Hang Me", was nominated for Best Roots Album at the Western Canadian Music Awards in 2008.
