Midwife Announces New Album ‘No Depression in Heaven’, Shares New Single

    Midwife has announced her fourth studio album, No Depression In Heaven, which is slated for release on September 9 via the Flenser. It’s led by the single ‘Killdozer’, which centers on the story of Marvin Heemeyer, a muffler repair shop owner who went on a demolition spree in a modified bulldozer before committing suicide in a small Colorado town in 2004. Listen to it below, and scroll down for the album cover (by Sam Rupsa) and tracklist.

    Madeline Johnston recorded the new album at her home in New Mexico between 2021 and 2023. It features collaborations with Chris Adolf and Michael Stein of American Culture, Ben Schurr and Tim Jordan of Nyxy Nyx, Angel Diaz of Vyva Melinkolya, and Allison Lorenzen. “It’s about the transient nature of what we do,” she explained. “Our bodies are vessels – our bodies are, together, a vessel, a vehicle, and that togetherness allows us to become something larger than ourselves in the slipstream of the unconscious, droving.”

    Midwife’s most recent LP was 2021’s Luminol. Last year, she released a collaborative record with Vyva Melinkolya called Orbweaving.
