Hymn For Her
Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin’ Flames
One day, this strange package arrives, containing an even stranger LP. For starters, the cover is adorned with skeletons, fruit, flames, cowboy regalia and a half moon. Initially, I figured it some hipster’s idea of being clever. Little did I know that I would soon be summarily shocked and awed by its insidiously addictive sound.
This is truly some original shite, the likes of which you’ve never heard before. A rootsy, Americana foundation soon finds itself overrun with fuzz guitars, psychedelic interludes, punk bluster and the twisted call-and-response vocals of the husband and wife team of Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing. (Think The White Stripes meets X, with Lucifer at the mixing board.)
Numbers like “Glistening Cowgirl” and “Trash the Sun” literally have a hypnotic effect in their idiosyncratic grooves. The murky sound quality of the vinyl only adds to the insanity. For something completely different, Lucy and Wayne’s is the way to go. (Baby Gas Mask Records)
