Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex: Earth Junk

Neil Michael Hagerty’s notion of songwriting is closer to penning existential non-fiction about faraway places and forlorn attitudes. His latest CD, "The Howling Hex: Earthjunk," is a stripped down mix of vocals, distorted guitars and layered keys that evoke mirages – whether in the New Mexico desert or small town shopping centers. Consider it an uneasy, aural tour of overlooked stretch of rural America.
