It started as Early Magic, this nowhere notion of nowhere dreaming. Music made of pilgrimage. It started in Iowa, migrated to Michigan, and continues as Tom Hymn: the minstrel poet of the mundane. He walks. Across Grand Rapids. Across entire countries. And his second album, Tom Hymn’s Tangerine Dream, contains each step, taking you on the journey with him: the dirty feet, the blistered sunburn, the fantasy. The album is a lullaby of slinky folk trance garage punk from la Época de Oro. It’s solo. It’s full band. It’s hymn and harmony, plainsong and prose, together and apart. You feel it, like a friend confiding, like a road trip, like a campfire song. It is the soundtrack to your sleep, Tom Hymn’s Tangerine Dream, and your subconscious demands a listen.
-Tyler Dunning

Track Name: Our Lady of Reminders
Golden road to the sun.
Secret sidewalks in the sky.
Ancient bang in my mind.
Constant stitch in my side.
Our lady of little reminders.
Hail Mary full of wonder.
This whole dame thing does not revolve around me.
But you can't discount all the mystery
That is shattering scattering gathering and swirling
Who will be my serpent of wisdom?
A key to clarity.
All the way over the sea just see
You will not die from all your curiosity
You will not perish from all of your seeking
And it's time in your mind cut the marionette twine
And you are free.
Sell my old car I'm off to Spain.
500 miles and away we go.
The holy trinity walks the Milky Way.
3 lovely lilies 3 little lovely sparrows.
I didn't hear you what did you say?
Cause St. Chris was humming on the radio.
We donned the scallops when we left the train.
The road is long & there's much more to go.
360 384
Les lunes de moi, les lunes de mes amours.
I didn't catch that what did you say?
It doesn't matter now cause you're with me.
