about

"ASH & HERB is a unit to challenge the very boundaries of duo exchanges within free dankazoid jam fiction. except this is fact, you can blast off. written by one of the medium's most innovative and prophetic voices (matt lajWAH from the mighty herbcraft), he is now found thrice as potent with astral goddess ASH "sister anubis" joining him in sonic rapture, tone and float perfectly realized on a joyous alternative earth. the dual vocal attack reminds me of a look i love & recognize, while the reality of time & death are totally displaced into some kinda homegrown dimension i haven't seen in what seems like an aeon but now is finally here.
and indeed it's all HERE, transportation, extrapolation, whack, zonk machine, action, art, plot, jam, focus…a truly superior work of free folk." - Matt "MV" Valentine

"A heady new project from Herbcraft’s Matt Lajoie, Ash & Herb pairs his psychedelic haze with partner in crime Ash, who provides some haunting vocals and lycergic instrumentation of her own. Not wholly divorced from Herbcraft’s earlier works, before they hit a heavier rock vein, the album wafts in on a puff of shamanistic smoke and settles down to craft temples in the woods. Picking out half ragas, divining rain spirits and then sublimating into a fine ether; the pair have captured themselves in some real improvisational glory. There was a time when psych-folk went deep and there were plenty of folks poking around through the beautiful bliss of cacophony. Now, it’s fewer and further between, but Ash & Herb, like MV & EE, who head up their label Child of Microtones, prove that there’s still more to till in that soil." - Raven Sings the Blues

"Ash & Herb destroy the bounds of genre with ferocious performances more in the vein of abstract jazz." - Decoder Magazine
