Atlanta, GA based musician Andy Hull – frontman of the rock band Manchester Orchestra – is out with the final album of his side project Right Away, Great Captain!, The Church of The Good Thief . Following 2007's The Bitter End and 2008's The Eventually Home , the third piece continues the story of a sailor at sea for years during the seventeenth century, hitting on themes of love, loss, death and betrayal. The eleven songs remain in the vein of lo-fi acoustic indie folk, which allows Hull to convey emotion in an intimate [...]

By Matt Arena In a music age where it’s common to wait at least 3 years (sometimes even more) for a band to put out a new record, it’s impressive when artists are able to produce music more consistently. And while keeping them of increasing quality. Even more impressive is a musician like Andy Hull. Working with 5 different bands, he’s collaborated on over 15 album or EP releases since 2004, not to mention his numerous guest appearances on various ...
Alberta Cross – Songs of Patience (ATO) O segundo álbum do agora duo Alberta Cross é um revival do rock do fim dos anos 90’ e começo dos 2000, com arranjos pouco reinventados e que ainda vêem no refrão crescente a forma mais eficaz de evolução da música. Por outro lado, a boa trinca inicial Magnolia, Crate of Gold e Lay Down causam uma boa impressão e deixam o álbum mais interessante, além de mostrar de quais fontes a dupla tem bebido, como a clara referência ao trabalho do [...]
Major props to ATP for hooking up with Andy Hull for a ear tickling acoustic session in which he performs my favorite TCOTGT track "I'll Wait For You" along with the previously unreleased solo track "423 which will be featured on the new Bad Books album: "I Wait For You" "423
By Allison Staulcup The Subterranean was packed last Wednesday night as people gathered for a night full of acoustic guitars and passionate vocals. Right Away, Great Captain! (Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra), Casey Crescenzo (of The Dear Hunter) and Harrison Hudson all took turns providing engaging melodies and endearing dialogue with the audience. Harrison Hudson started the show with a short and sweet set. Playing only a handful of songs, he managed to win over the eager crowd with his [...]
You might know Andy Hull as the frontman of the Atlanta based alternative rock band Manchester Orchestra but have you ever taken a listen to his great solo project Right Away, Great Captain! ? Andy's been working on this project for six years with 20062s "The Bitter End" and 20082s "The Eventually Home" and is completing the trilogy with a tour in support of "The Church Of The Good Thief" ( iTunes ) just released last month. Andy's on tour ...
Andy Hull of Right Away, Great Captain! Right Away, Great Captain! has unveiled one of the bonus items that came with their new album pre-order. This being the B-Side album entitled The Lost Sea . It is 15 tracks of original demos and one-offs that range from quick less than 2 minute song to an almost 8 minute closing track. It can be pretty raw at times, but if you are a fan of the Manchester Orchestra front man's solo material, you will not be disappointed. The only issue for those on the fence is [...]
FIRE AND FOREMOST, Y'ALL: In retrospect, it is in your best interest to check out that Wake Owl track first. Clearly all of this squizzness contained herein is delicious but holy balls of Thor, if 'Wild Country' isn't the best thing you hear today, we'll eat our hat. Carry on... * The following is an accounting of all the tabs open on this computer, a list of things we find worth your time. Please gander through these bits with us, won't you. If my [...]
Right Away, Great Captain - I Am Aware Last week, Andy Hull released the third record / chapter by pen name Right Away, Great Captain, a songwriting tale began in '06 on The Bitter End and on '082s The Eventually Home , about a sailor who "upon discovering his wife cheating on him with his brother, runs away to sea and gradually descends into a vengeful rage." The Church of the Good Thief follows those up, with an intentionally solitary and emotional sound of the crumbling world of said sailor. [...]

Andy Hull released the third and final installment of his Right Away, Great Captain project earlier this week. The Church Of The Good Thief brings the close to the trilogy that includes mostly acoustic tracks from a solo Hull. Some of it is completely boner-kill music, but other tracks are phenomenal. Check out a track off the last chapter entitled "When I Met Death". They are giving away a free download of this tune over at Rolling Stone, but fuck that magazine. Get it here. RIGHT AWAY, GREAT CAPTAIN [...]
Definitely don't mind Right Away, Great Captain getting the spotlight over here on BWC today, as I'm sure The Church of The Good Thief will be in heavy rotation round these parts for the forseeable future. Today Hull is giving away the albums 2nd track "When I Met Death" which appears as one of the few more upbeat tracks on what is an overall stark, minimalist record. Read more about what Hull had to say about the track via Rolling Stone. [...]
Nervous Energies! Thank you! On the hind of releasing the new Right Away, Great Captain album (out today, go pick it up ), Hull also did a session with NE where he debuted "Pytor" , a new Bad Books song along with a performance of new RAGC track "We Were Made Out Of Lightening"
Coming off a hectic month that saw quite an impressive array of releases including a pair of sensational efforts from Hawks and Royal Thunder , it sort of feels nice to leisurely coast into June and settle into a "wait-and-see" mode. With the exception of Andy Hull's (Manchester Orchestra) long-running solo project, Right Away, Great Captain! , which sees the release of the third and final installment of Hull's epically sprawling folk tale on June 12, there is nothing on this list that most would consider "highly-anticipated." Still, there always remains the possibility of a dark [...]
