Earlimart – Hymn And Her

July 4, 2008

Hymn And Her, the new album from Los Angeles based Earlimart, is mostly the work of Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray, who serve both as the primary songwriters and only permanent members of the band. Espinoza’s vocals and music bear similarity to fellow travelers such as Elliott Smith and Kevin Tihista’s Red Terror, while Murray’s songs recall another indie pop band, the late, great Aberdeen. Hymn And Her is an almost pitch perfect mixture of ethereal pop, experimental pop and guitar based indie rock. This latest effort continues an upward trajectory for Earlimart, solidifying a reputation for making some of the best American indie pop music to be heard in recent years. This will surely delight indie pop fans, and is definitely recommended for listeners looking for literate, well crafted music for adults. Standout cuts: “Song For,” “Before It Gets Better,” “Teeth” and “Hymn And Her.”
