about

Sludge-mystics trigger involuntary trance-mode. Myrrh is the power trio of Jackie Beckey (of Brute Heart), Andie Mazorol (Mother Of Fire) and Jason Millard (Lighted). They have made a name for themselves around Minneapolis with their epic and minimal form of instrumental doom pummel, but the instrumentation itself also sets this group apart. Viola, Lap Steel, Electronics and Drums weave together to form what could possibly be the heaviest folk music ever made. There is an air filled sense of space throughout these recordings, while still providing detailed crunch and clarity to the goings on. Sweeping strings and percussive plucking folded over sliding fuzz and tone-crackle, backed by enormous crushing rhythm. Restrained yet unbelievably massive. Masterfully recorded by Jason Misik to 1” tape, and beautifully mixed by John Marks (Art of This), "Hymns" comes as a powerful follow up to their excellent self-titled debut album, recently re-released on vinyl from Soft Abuse. Dramatic and drifting psychedelic doom anthems for tomorrow’s sweat soaked soirée.



"Genuinely emotionally-stimulating through all of its down-tuned, grungey glory. This was unexpectedly brilliant..." - Heathen Harvest
