ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
James Hilborne & the Painkillers weave folk stories with a web of sound that is equal parts psychedelia, honky-tonk, shoegazer and Ed Wood. Alternating from cute to macabre, this music will creep under your skin. Perfect for strobe-lit, back-room, choking-on-smoke, David Lynch-style flesh mingling. The title of their debut CD Ghostcountry is hauntingly fitting.

"The strange, spectral tunes brought to mind the phrase Griel Marcus coined to describe the dark vein in American folk: The old, weird America."
"They have a knack for taking simple, direct songs and making them seem complex and ambiguous."
- Mark Thomas Deming, Weekly Volcano, Tacoma, WA
