Album design for Evening Fires' “Where I've Been Is Places and What I've Seen Is Things,” out on Sunrise Ocean Bender Records. A collective of musical shape-shifters, a band, a tribe of mountain-dwelling barn alchemists … Evening Fires defy definition as much as limitations, no matter what form they choose to take. From their secret den in a northern Appalachian forest, Evening Fires brew up a rich blend of wide-spectrum rural psychedelia with ingredients ranging from earthy folk sounds to cosmic drones to full-on rock freak-outs. Throughout their catalog, these enigmatic men and women conjure a distillation that cherishes the heart of the process as highly as the sounds they produce. As natural as any old-growth, their branches unfurl beneath their own celestial canopy. Wonderfully universal, embracingly intimate … enjoy the warmth.
