HPPR Living Room Concert: Little Mazarn - LIVE IN AMARILLO

Jun 20, 2018

Little Mazarn plays at Teckla House on Sunday, July 1st!

Little Mazarn told us they were coming thorough Amarillo, and we had to make sure they'd pause and play us a few tunes. This Austin-based multi-instrumentalist Lindsey Verrill, accompanied by virtuosic sonic wails from Jeff Johnston on saw, blew our minds at South by Southwest 2018. (Yes, there will be saw.) The new, self-titled release Little Mazarn is out now on Self Sabotage Records.

“This album is for all the young souls in the universe, aka everyone.” —Little Mazarn

Lindsey has played in the McMercy Family Band, Some Say Leland, and Dana Falconberry & Medicine Bow. To get a feel for the new album, check out the song "My Love Is All Around You," with an accompanying video that showcases how the duo’s sound can penetrate a space in reverb and echo to truly envelop the listener. Their sound flutters with history while serving as an incantation for simplicity in the present tense. You’ll be haunted by the soothing, sometimes-spooky lilt of their compositions, so bring something profound to sip as you trip out under the Teckla house trees.

“Named after a river in Arkansas, Little Mazarn bridges the distance between slowcore, gospel, and Appalachian folk… with gorgeous strings, ghostly banjo plucking, and eerie singing saw. At the center, Verrill’s voice, breathy and haunting, emerges more prominently than ever before. Floating by like half-remembered dreams, these tunes bear an aural texture akin to a long walk on a moonlit coast.” 

— Jedd Beaudoin, Pop Matters (June 2018)
