Editors’ Notes Folk singer Meg Baird climbs behind the drums to lead Heron Oblivion, a heavy psych quartet anchoring her fragile, lilting voice with rumbling squalls of distortion. That unlikely combination pays off handsomely as these tracks unspool over up to 10 minutes at a time. The guitars are alternately chiming, rootsy, and acid-fried, achieving a fevered sprawl on “Oriar” and evoking Sonic Youth’s splintered poppiness on “Faro”. Bluesy and full-blooded, this debut will also appeal to fans of Bardo Pond and the noisier side of Low.
