LP version with CD included. He was known at first as a traditional singer-songwriter with simple arrangements of acoustic guitar and vocals, a French cousin to Will Oldham and Jason Molina. Then he became the leader of a rough and enraged band who recorded Off the Map (BEC 5161299/5161300, 2013), an electric storm of a record, with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago. But the truth is we hadn't seen anything yet. H-Burns is back to prove once more that it's possible to stay true while endlessly reinventing oneself. Calmer, poppier, cleaner, more Californian, but still anxious and sorrowful, Night Moves was produced by the all too rare Rob Schnapf (who has previously worked with Beck, Elliott Smith, and Guided By Voices) with a group including A. A. Bondy (Verbena) and Troy von Balthazar (Chokebore). The result: 11 songs orchestrated around theme of nighttime in Los Angles. A restless and troubled night with the insidious threat of an earthquake lurking in the shadows. There are ghosts there too, those of Elliott Smith, Brian Wilson, Neil Young, Roy Orbison, and Bruce Springsteen.
