CD Review: Hymn For Her's "Smokin" New Album

California country rockers Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing are ready to release their new album entitled “Hymn for Her Presents…Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin Flames.” The duo traveled to Detroit to work with Jim Diamond (White Stripes) in his Ghetto Recorders Studio to help capture a more “stompgrass” sound. The album will be self-released on April 23 and proudly displays what the past few years of touring have taught them.

The album starts off with “Mojave” which comes a little too close the White Stripes to sound original, but not to worry, the rest of the album certainly does. Lucy and Wayne travel to the country for the acoustic blues of “Glistening Cowgirl” and have fun experimenting on the seven-minute “Trash The Sun.” They bang away on the 92-second punk sounding “Rosa Parks Blvd.,” before pulling back for the country blues of “Landescape.” The mellow, folk sounds of “Burn This” seems out of place with rockabilly numbers “Chemicals” and “For The Dead.” The album closes with the gentle acoustics of “Passion” as you can really appreciate the vocals of Lucy Tight.

Lucy and Wayne are making their way across the mid-west with shows in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Kansas. To find out more, please visit hymnforher.com.
