Band Case File: The Myrrors

Ever wondered what Terry Riley would of sounded like if he'd ditched his Yamaha organ, picked up an electric guitar and turned the reverb up to 11? Well, wonder no more.The Myrrors, hailing from Arizona in the U.S, are a band which this blog has reviewed and interviewed several times before, the band being a pinnacle of the neo-psychedelia in my opinion. Get ready to experience a band that manages to capture the essence of the wilderness, and still make you feel right at home.
