ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hymn for Her have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish,” and “Hillbillies with electronics opening Pandora’s Box”

In June 2018, H4H flew overseas for an extended tour of the UK/Europe. Returning to America in September, they will tour through the fall with their new release, 'Pop-N-Downers', recorded in Nashville with grammy winner, Vance Powell & mastered by Richard Dodd. Mingling textures and tones far removed from the “hayride to hellsy” twang-rock blast of their 2016 release, Drive Til U Die, the songs on Pop-N-Downers simultaneously exude sophistication and a charming, childlike whimsy. A colorful Tropicália vibe floats through several of these tunes, imbuing them with a lightness of being even when the lyrics turn heavy. A video for their first track, "Blue Balloons" was on the top 10 list featured in Rolling Stone Magazine September 2018.

In the spring & summer of 2016, they toured Europe and the UK. They returned to the States in the fall to promote their summer release, “Drive Til U Die” recorded partially in their Bambi Airstream and partially in studios with some excellent engineers/producers. (Vance Powell, Mitch Easter & Jim Diamond).

In 2017, they returned to the UK and Europe playing many festivals, including Glastonbury, to promote “Drive Til U Die” to their overseas audience.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.

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.
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.

Yet more marvelous music!
I fell in love with Lucy and Wayne's sound in July 2016 when I came across them by chance at Sage Gateshead's annual Americana Festival. I was smitten instantly, not only with the music but by their musicianship, rapport with the crowd and the unashamed chemistry between the two of them. I've been hanging out for this latest offering, Pop n Downers, since I heard it was imminent a few months ago. Having listened to it several times, I'm struggling to pick a stand-out track. I love it all! Scoop is great, however, as I heard it live at this year's American Festival, bringing back memories of a great summer spent with friends old and new.
Hymn for Her's music makes you dance about, ponder life, and live for the moment. I'd recommend all their albums without hesitation!

THIS is Americana at its finest.
I've been a fan of Hymn for Her for a number of years and this CD is my favorite of theirs. It's eclectic, smart and fun. Their sense of musicality and humor is obvious and it's amazing that so much full sound comes from a duo. I've seen them live and it's the real deal. as also thrilled that the song "November" made it onto this CD. They've been playing it live for a while and it's a beautiful song.
