“There are natural forces at work in the sound of Mind Over Mirrors’ Undying Color. Its meditative drones move forward with a sense of direction, their weight determining their course.” – FLOOD Magazine
“Undying Color is an album of sprawling beauty.” – XLR8R
“Stratospheric soundscapes with textural vocalizations that bring to mind the orbital beauty of Steve Reich while achieving an analog warmth all their own.” – FACT
“The most diverse Mind Over Mirrors release so far, featuring detailed sonic textures, percussion-led rhythms, and a web of singing that opens up new spaces in the music.” – The Wire
“Across seven tracks, Fennelly delivers striking, life-affirming folk with electronics experimentations.” – The Quietus
Mind Over Mirrors will release Undying Color, an expansive new album of ecstatic drones inspired by the cyclical patterns of the natural world, next week on Paradise of Bachelors. Today The Quietus is streaming the album in full alongside an interview with Mind Over Mirrors mastermind Jaime Fennelly, who discusses expanding the project’s line-up to a full ensemble and how he settled on the album’s title. Undying Color has been praised for its omnivorous incorporation of devotional sounds and its exploratory spirit.
Undying Color dramatically expands the sound palette Fennelly draws on, featuring contributions from Haley Fohr (Circuit des Yeux), Janet Bean (Eleventh Dream Day), Jim Becker (Califone), and Jon Mueller (Volcano Choir, Death Blues), with production by Cooper Crain (Bitchin Bajas).
Mind Over Mirrors will be celebrating the release of Undying Color at Constellation in Chicago on March 3rd as a quartet, with Mueller, Bean, and Califone’s Jim Becker on fiddle. They will be co-headlining the show with Doug McComb’s Brokeback. More info on the show is available HERE.
