Hymn for Her have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described as Hell's Angels meets the Amish.

They recorded their 2nd album, "Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne and the Amairican Stream", in their vintage 1961 Bambi Airstream trailer at locations stretching from Philadelphia to Malibu on a three-month tour.
For their latest release, "Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne's Smokin Flames", the twosome kicked it into high gear. They traveled to Ghetto Recorders in Detroit to work with Jim Diamond.

They recorded live and mixed 12 original songs in just one week.

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.

Catch this duo as they burn down the highway and tear up your town like a Wichita twister.
