Niel Brooks “The Angels Laid Him Away/Lous Collins”

Not the typical sound that we cover here at Pop Occulture, but over the years I’ve held tight to one simple philosophy. If you don’t like Mississippi John Hurt, I don’t like you.

Done in a style recommencement of musicians like early Bob Dylan or William Elliot Whitmore, Niel Brooks’s take on the classic Mississippi John Hurt song “The Angels Laid Him Away/Lous Collins” is organic and honest in a way that gives the song an air of authenticity that is refreshing. Even if the song is one of the world’s most famous murder ballads.
