Donal Hinely's new album is a paean to the vagaries of fate, a hymn of late night regret tempered by an unabashedly open heart and a refreshing sense of humor. Populated with dreamers, losers, lovers, and saints and driven by master musicianship from the likes of Will Kimbrough, Viktor Krauss, and David Mead, The Famous Rocket Cage is Americana that speaks to the human condition, celebrating both the heartaches and the little victories of life. Since the critical praise of his 2002 album We Built a Fire, Hinely has only broadened his reputation for what what Paste Magazine has called his "quality song craft." Rooted in the same storytelling tradition of musical heroes John Prine, Steve Earle, and Guy Clark, Hinely stretches the boundaries of country and folk by both challenging and entertaining the listener, delivering songs flush with lyrical substance, striking imagery, and catchy hooks.
