Little Mazarn, the stage name for Lindsey Verrill, gets her name from what she calls “an unromantic river” in Arkansas. Playing banjo on three original songs, a traditional murder ballad (“Rain And Snow”), and an English sea song, Little Mazarn, in her lilting warble, sings “about precious things, boring things, nature and the garbage that is humanity” (her words) on her upcoming self-titled album. A dreamy pop that would have fit in nicely with the slowcore of the late ’90s and early ’00s, the LP also has unmistakable connections to older forms and genres like country, gospel, and Appalachian folk.
Verrill is joined on the album by live accompanist Jeff Johnston on saw, vocals, and harmonium, as well as several guests contributing strings and vocals throughout. The LP was recorded and mixed by David Boyle at ChurchHouse Studios in east Austin.
Little Mazarn will be available on LP and download on December 15th via Self Sabotage Records, a division of Super Secret Records. Pre-orders are available HERE
Verrill releases a single from the album, the hauntingly and bare “White Fang” that hangs on her dulcet, drawn out vocals.
