The Myrrors
The Myrrors
The Myrrors are a band from Tucson, Arizona that makes what they describe as "Sonoran Trance Music," a hypnotic stew of heavy drone and mountainside krautrock informed equally by pan-national psychedelia and experimental minimalism. The group was formed in 2007 by teenage multi-instrumentalists Nik Rayne and Grant Beyschau, and first gained international attention with their debut album Burning Circles in the Sky (featuring the underground hit "Warpainting"), before a four year hiatus saw the band restructure itself for a series of increasingly-ambitious and politically-minded LPs for cult labels like Cardinal Fuzz and Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records and a high-profile two-month European tour in 2015.

Their most recent album for BBiB, 2017's Hasta La Victoria, sees the ever-fluctuating ensemble delving even deeper into the Terry Riley-meets-Amon Duul mantras hinted at on previous recordings, with tape loops, saxophones, woodwinds, and South Asian folk instruments taking equal billing to what might be described as your more typical rock-band instrumental lineup.

“[Hasta La Victoria] places them with other equally powerful acts in psych/drone’s newest generation, such as Japan’s Kikagaku Moyo, Canada’s Shooting Guns and the UK’s Cult of Dom Keller and Haikai No Ku—all with their own sounds and aesthetics, but all dedicated to being enthralled by head-nodding waves of feedback and general zoning out." - Noisey

Abronia
Consisting of two guitars, bass, tenor saxophone, pedal steel, and one giant drum (no drum set here), Abronia makes music that takes inspiration from Spaghetti Western soundtracks, spiritual free jazz, drone metal, various tribal music, Tuareg guitar bands, 80's goth, outlaw country, Krautrock, 60's psychedelia, and the arid landscapes of the American West. Both delicate and enormous, Abronia has carved out its own singular sonic space within the the broader psych rock universe.

Their debut album was released on vinyl through Portland's Mississippi Records associated, Water Wing Records, and on CD by the British label, Reverb Worship, in the summer of 2017, earning praise from critics around the world and getting consistent airplay on stations such as the legendary WFMU.

Fresh off of a songwriting retreat at an isolated ranch in Oregon's high desert Abronia is armed with new material and will begin recording its next album within the next few months.
