The Myrrors – Invocaciones: Instrumental Singles and Strays (2014-2016) (2021)

“The Myrrors lose themselves in transcendental improvisation… in free flowing circular raga mode. It’s a state of playing that takes take the listener into a deeply shamanistic ecstatic state that is both spellbinding and enrapturing, were you are treated to the music that rivals the free flowing communal progg freakdom of late 60’s/early 70s Germany/ Scandinavia but transported to the Arabian desert. Here a cacophony of flute and whistles, viola, tape loops, alto saxophone, bulbul tarang and guitars churn and cavort through ebbing cosmic shimmer and ecstatic pulsing ritualistic Eastern drones. Try imagining The Velvet Underground, The Taj Mahal Travellers and Parson Sound transported to the Arabian desert. It is ecstatic and otherworldly as you open up your mind and let everything come through – The Myrrors have found the keys to the kingdom of heaven.”

Curved Entrances – Curved Entrances (2019)

“Debut release from The Myrrors side-project Curved Entrances, a heavy free-improv noise/psych trio featuring guitarists Nik Rayne and Connor Gallaher and drummer Grant Beyschau. Born out of after-hours rehearsals soon after Rayne and Beyschau hooked up with Gallaher’s own Tucson project The Night Collectors, this album features the first two improvisations ever laid down by the formation, and despite the relative age of the recordings is hopefully a teaser for more material to come!”

The Myrrors – Solar Collector (2013)

“With little attention to singing, Tucson’s The Myrrors instead focus on a unique brand of desert rock where atmosphere and experimentalism are both psyche and prog-rock fueled. Each track here winds its own distinct and complicated path, from droning and muted to bursts of jazz fusion and all with a haunting, mysterious backdrop. The band are never in a hurry to get anywhere, instead focusing on manipulating each moment before moving into other unpredictable realms.”
