Hymn For Her / The Sudden Lovelys / Fattenin' Frogs (duo)


About Hymn For Her

The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in Smokin Flames. Their wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk led U.K. music critic Steve Bennett to call H4H’s sound “a riotous, rocking roadkill stew,” while others have referenced such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.

Impressively, the two create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow” — a custom-made cigar-box guitar: “The Riff Monster.”

About The Sudden Loveleys

We get asked all the time "what kind of music do you play?" ... Such a difficult question. If we said, "it's a guy and a girl and we play folk music, and our name is The Sudden Lovelys" ... Well, we happen to think that comes across as rather innocent, quiet or more like traditional folk music. Yes, we have some songs that fit into that stereotype, but it only scratches the surface. A lot of our music has no shortage of  teeth and for two people we make a hell of a lot of noise.

About Fattenin' Frogs

Born out of love for the back roads music of America’s past, The Fattenin’ Frogs play rock & roll in its original spirit by cranking up the electricity on the music of the juke joints, hootenannies, medicine shows and tent revivals of yesteryear. The Minneapolis sextet puts their heart and soul into every song so come on out, sing, dance, and clap along!
