If the name Colin Miller sounds familiar, you have probably spent a not-negligible amount of time looking at the credits for other Asheville luminaries like MJ Lenderman (Miller helped engineer and produce last year’s Boat Songs), Wednesday (same for I Was Trying To Describe You To Someone), and Indigo De Souza (2018’s I Love My Mom). Miller also makes music on his own, and he’s racked up a decent amount of material over the past few years, mostly one-offs and shorter home-recorded affairs.
Today, Miller is announcing his full-length debut, Haw Creek, named after the Asheville neighborhood where he lives. Lead single “Don’t Love You No More” is an insular shuffle, a little Hovvdy-esque in its execution, its earwormy central refrain repeated around a whirring, constantly shifting sonic environment. Check it out below.
02 “Don’t Love You No More”
