Hymn For Her
Hymn for Her have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described in such ways as, “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish.”, "Opening up Pandoras box and out jumps two hillbillies with electronics that blow your mind."
Hymn For Her smash through the highway guardrails and land in a carnival on a hot air balloon. Float away with them on their new release, ‘Pop-N-Downers’, recorded with Vance Powell. Out Oct 5, 2018.
Returning to the States after a 3 month UK/Euro tour the past two summers playing festivals (including Glastonbury, etc...) and many shows, they immediately hit the road for fall & winter to promote their 4th US release, “Drive Til U Die” recorded partially in their vintage Bambi Airstream and partially in studios with renowned engineers/producers. (Vance Powell, Mitch Easter & Jim Diamond)
For their 3rd release, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin Flames”, the twosome kicked it into high gear. They traveled to Ghetto Recorders/Detroit to work with Jim Diamond. They recorded live & mixed 12 original songs in just one week.
The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in Smokin Flames. Their wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk led U.K. music critic Steve Bennett to call H4H’s sound “a riotous, rocking roadkill stew,” while others have referenced such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.
They recorded their 2nd album, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne and the Amairican Stream”, in their vintage 1961 Bambi Airstream trailer at locations stretching from Philadelphia to Malibu on a three-month tour.
Their first release, "Year of the Golden Pig" is a bare bones acoustic album recorded in a cabin on a cove on an island off the rocky coast of Maine. It captures the stark barren winter with haunting melodies and yearning lyrics.
Impressively, the two create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow” — a custom-made cigar-box guitar: “The Riff Monster.”
Catch this duo as they burn down the highway and tear up your town like a Wichita twister.
Che Apalache is a four-man string band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States. The group’s founder is Joe Troop (fiddle), a North Carolinian multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer who moved to Argentina in 2010. While patiently carving out a niche in the local music scene, Joe taught bluegrass and old-time music for a living. That’s how he met Pau Barjau (banjo), Franco Martino (guitar) and Martin Bobrik (mandolin), his most dedicated students. They quickly became picking buddies and in 2013 decided to hit the stage.
What began as the solo recording project of singer/songwriter Grace Rowland Park, the group formed its core membership in 2012 under the band name Grace Park & The Deer, and released "An Argument for Observation." The songs have a dark, folky feel; eerily lilting melodies with unexpected subjects like stalking, drug-dealing, and murder. Through the recording process they found a spark lit by natural chemistry, on and off the stage, and they began performing and touring together with alternating guests - some of whom ended up becoming permanent members. Grace’s screen-printed cover art would later rank among Austin Music Industry Awards’ Top 5 Best Album Art for 2014.
In 2013 they suffered the devastating loss of dear friend and band member Stephanie Bledsoe to an accident on her farm. The group rallied under the name The Deer, and collaborated on songs dedicated to her memory for their second release, "On the Essence of the Indomitable Spirit" (2015). Dark with a tinge of hope, it features special guests Dennis Ludiker (Asleep at the Wheel), Roger Sellers (Bayonne), Trevor Smith (Wood & Wire), Karl Kummerle, and Noah Jeffries (MilkDrive). With a maturing sound, The Deer placed among the Austin Music Awards’ Top 10 Best Performing Folk Bands for the first time that year.
Their 2016 album “Tempest & Rapture” marries their brand of moody Southern Gothic with symphonic psychedelia. It’s split into two stylistic realms: the first side is rooted in muddy folk and surf-country, and the other side wanders far out in a dream-pop and psych-rock wilderness - all with their distinctly curious and incantational poetic content printed within. It’s their largest album, boasting 17 tracks on gorgeous 180-gm bottle-green vinyl; a double LP to house its gigantic sound. It saw the return of guest collaborator Roger Sellers, and guest string players Dennis Ludiker and Noah Jeffries (who would soon become a full-on Deer). The jacket design by Grace Rowland Park features her cut-paper artwork, and clinched another place in Austin Music Industry Awards’ Top 5 Best Album Art category last year. The Deer also placed a second time in the Austin Music Awards’ Top 10 Best Performing Folk Bands.
The Deer have played their hometown Austin’s Moody Theater and the Legendary Stubb’s, as well as Kerrville Folk Festival, Old Settler’s, Utopiafest, WinterWonderGrass, Oregon Country Fair, Campout for the Cause, Americanafest, SXSW, and more. They have co-billed with Elephant Revival, Fruition, Wild Child, Calliope Musicals, and more. The Deer are currently recording a new album to be released in 2018, while simultaneously touring across the universe. Check their tour dates for a town near you.
