Born among the basements and four-tracks of Iowa’s underground, Pythias Braswell blends ancient relics and alien lasers into a song form that is both old and new. His songs are heartfelt, sacred, melodic, and given to occasional moments of improvised disintegration. He sings about mystery, memory, death and dreams. During performances, he uses poems, stories and field recordings to elaborate and deepen the world in which the songs are living.
