Prayer Shack is released

The first single  and video from The Handsome Years is released

That's it, people: Big Medicine Head has released the long anticipated single Prayer Shack, in both audio and video formats. "Prayer Shack" continues a thread that began on the first Big Medicine Head album Rex Hotel  - a contemplation of American culture through the lens of modern evangelism. "Prayer Shack" works on a more intimate level than Rex Hotel's "8 Days in the Bible Belt", however, in that it offers a first person narrative: the protagonist is urging his flock to "roll up your sleeves, gotta battle with the devil at the Prayer Shack tonight". In a sense, the song uses the lexicon of the evangelical  demagouge to shine a light on the evangelical  demagouge.
