Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing of Hymn for Her know how to stay busy. Between three-month tours and writing music, they have to keep up with being a family — and they do it all in a vintage Airstream mobile home. It’s a place that acts as a practice space, a recording studio, and, according to guitarist Lucy Tight, “It’s a brothel.” All joking aside, Hymn for Her’s rowdy sound will have you digging a hole with your heel from all the foot-stomping to be had. They’re kick-drum heavy and make noise with enough instruments for a four-piece band, but they do it all with half the members. The duo relies on traditional guitars, cigar box banjos, and ukes, and they bend harmonies to the breaking point. The band sounds like what you might hear if Meg White ditched Jack and joined up with Les Claypool, who promptly left his bass behind for a cigar-box guitar. —J. Chapa MONDAY and next wednesday
