Review of The Myrrors – Archive Vol. 1 – Lunar Halo on Cardinal Fuzz & Sky Lantern Records

Lunar Halo saw release in late 2017 on cassette tape via the bands own in-house label “Organic Music Society”. For vinyl, Lunar Halo has been mastered by Chris Hardman and comes with a download code which plays Lunar Halo as one complete piece. 

Availability on vinyl is very limited, at the time of writing Cardinal Fuzz have only 2 black vinyls in stock for European customers; The Myrrors have vinyl available for US customers and it is also available in digital formats from The Myrrors Bandcamp site that is embedded above. 

Lunar Halo captures The Myrrors in full circular raga mode, transporting you from the rainy confines of Café Passe in Tucson Arizona to the free flowing communal progg freakdom of late 60’s / early 70s Scandinavia. 

Lunar Halo is a blissful laid back groove with sitar type instruments, evolving drones, guitar effects and a guitar lead with an edge of distortion / feedback building tension before returning to the laid back groove. That may seem a very short review.  Considering it’s just shy of half an hour long, it certainly doesn’t feel anywhere near that long listening to it because it’s so absorbing.  And that’s really the essence of the review – sit back and listen.  It’s stunning.
