Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Mallory Chipman & The Mystics’ new album, Aquarian, embraces an entirely new approach to making music. Chipman has reconnected with her inner rocker and transformed her sound into a genre-obliterating sonic experience that seems to channel Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, and Esperanza Spalding all at once. Chipman is ready to reveal her true musical identity, one not easily defined, but sure to turn a lot of heads and blow a lot of minds.
