Hargo's Radical Sounds

Mar 1, 2012, By Barbara Schultz

Hargo’s eclectic new disc Out of Mankind is alt-rock with a gamut of found sounds, “ethnic” instruments and horns. But as engineer/producer Joel Hamilton points out, “It’s not an ‘experimental’ record by any means,” as strong original songs take the front seat. ...
