Format // CD // 2xLP+CD // Digital
On January 22th, PNN Records will release the debut album of its most enigmatic artist; myr. ‘Diamondbacks Make Wonderful Pets’ is more than just a strange name, it nine tracks represent an exciting evolution in myr.`s trajectory as an artist. Following his debut EP ‘Nobody knows Avalon’ myr. seems to have dug deep and discovered another level to his sound. Each of the tracks on the record are confidently offbeat and precisely composed.
’A Little-Bitty Bowl (with B.Hotton)’, mixes thunder sound-effects with glitchy synth bleeps, layering them above darker tones which build to a perfect storm in the middle. This 10 minute track fails to get boring and is representative of the album as a whole. myr.`s ability to carry off strange hybrids is what makes his music unique. From the ghostly warbles of ‘I Think I Hear Them Coming’ to the sunnier sounds of ‘Eleanor’, myr.`s disregard for the norm has lead to an exceptional record that surprises at every turn.
