Boomkat Product Review:
"Band of Holy Joy's first new songs since their How to Kill a Butterfly album was released to universal acclaim at the close of 2011 (including album of the year at Beat Surrender)! And whilst that album moved through some dark places, Wyrd Beautiful Thyme finds love and life in chaos embracing the pockets of joy that can still be found even as the world spirals into hell. This beautifully illustrated 7" (their first since 1992) finds Johny and the band in ebullient mind and body - the title track is energised and gleeful with loose percussion, fuzzy synth, woody wah wah and enchanting backing vocals whilst the flip, A Clean White Shirt, is reflective and triumphant as they emerge sweetly out of "a terminally bad existence" and away from the mire. Wyrd Beautiful Thyme sees Band of Holy Joy continue to burn a path brighter than at any other time since they first formed."
