Hymn and Her

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Earlimart took a casual approach to Mentor Tormentor, an intricate album whose creation spanned the course of three years. Songs were written at an unhurried pace while the group toured in support of its previous record, made the switch to a different record label, and pursued individual solo projects. So perhaps it's strange that Earlimart's follow-up, Hymn and Her, arrives just one year after Tormentor's 2007 release. It's the fastest turnaround of any Earlimart album, suggesting either a burst of inspiration or a slapdash, all-too-fast approach to songwriting. Fortunately, Hymn and Her features the same sun-baked slices of indie pop that made Mentor Tormentor and ...

Earlimart took a casual approach to Mentor Tormentor, an intricate album whose creation spanned the course of three years. Songs were written at an unhurried pace while the group toured in support of its previous record, made the switch to a different record label, and pursued individual solo projects. So perhaps it's strange that Earlimart's follow-up, Hymn and Her, arrives just one year after Tormentor's 2007 release. It's the fastest turnaround of any Earlimart album, suggesting either a burst of inspiration or a slapdash, all-too-fast approach to songwriting. Fortunately, Hymn and Her features the same sun-baked slices of indie pop that made Mentor Tormentor and Treble & Tremble such appetizing fare. Bandmates Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray (now the group's only two members) haven't sacrificed quality for speed; they've simply shed their extra baggage, turning Earlimart from a multi-membered musical collective into a fast-working duo. As before, the new album places a big emphasis on sonic texture, but Espinoza also offers up some of his most straightforward pop melodies. Acoustic guitars chime over drum loops, keyboards bubble in the background, and harmonies thicken the melodies, yet Hymn and Her still sounds intimate, as if the bandmates have discovered how to funnel their densely populated songs into warm, mellow washes of sound. It's ideal music for headphones, where the clever production can reveal all of its layers. At the same time, it's hard to imagine a setting in which the relaxed chug of "Teeth" and "For the Birds" wouldn't sound completely engaging.

Hymn and Her is Earlimart's follow up to 2007's Mentor Tormentor. Like its predecessor, this album comes via Earlimart's own Shout Factory imprint Majordomo. Part of the explanation behind the album's name is that Ealimart pared down to the duo at its core, Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray. Espinoza and Murray holed themselves up in Espinoza's studio, the Ship, in the Eagle Rock section of Los Angeles (where Espinoza has recorded many a prominent L.A. band) to crank out a new album. A month later, the two emerged. Hymn and Her finds Murray taking on more songwriting and singing duties, after contributing only one song, "Happy Alone," to Mentor Tormentor.
