PRE-ORDER UNDYING COLOR:
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.
– Marc Masters, The Wire
Devotional ambient dreamscapes, oak-aged kosmische jams, a kaleidoscopic game of drones… Undying Color offers a rich, textured experience. This psych sound world demands full sensory immersion, but once inside there’s much to enjoy, as it follows in the fertile footsteps of Terry Riley and Alice Coltrane.
– Stephen Dalton, Uncut
Immersive sonic worlds… The rebounding sounds that dominate Undying Color have a cumulative effect, and form a kind of aural mist within the listener can get lost. Charming.
– Alun Hamnett, Record Collector
UK magazines The Wire, Uncut, MOJO, and Record Collector have joined the chorus of critical acclaim for the artistry of Mind Over Mirrors and forthcoming release Undying Color, on which Jaime Fennelly and his cohort (including members of Circuit des Yeux, Eleventh Dream Day, Califone, and Volcano Choir) further explore the horizons of their sprawling and shimmering soundscapes. The new issue of Uncut also features the lead track “Restore & Slip” on their covermount CD.

The music Jaime Fennelly makes under the name Mind Over Mirrors creates a sense of everlasting wonder…If 2015’s The Voice Calling was a somber devotional, Undying Color is shaping up to be praise music for the American landscape. – NPR
An album of sprawling beauty, one that traverses through heady swells of moaning synthesizers, pulsing, bent rhythms, and avant-garde instrumentation. – XLR8R
