Midwife is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter Madeline Johnson, who began performing under the name Midwife in 2017.  Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Midwife plays a dreamy, hazy, atmospheric, and introspective-leaning style of music that incorporates elements of metal, alt. rock, and shoegaze within their sound.  Since forming in 2015, Midwife have released a nine song LP titled Like Author, Like Daughter in June of 2017, a four song LP titled Prayer Hands in July of 2018, a most recently collaboration LP with Amulets, Mark Trecka and Susan Alcorn titled In/Heaven in August of 2020, and a six song LP titled Forever in April of 2020.  Luminol is Midwife's latest full-length LP, which was released via The Flenser on July 16th, 2021.  On Luminol, Midwife offer up six tracks of hazy, dreamy, and atmospheric metal, alt. rock, indie rock, and shoegaze.  Overall, Luminol makes for an amazing listen and will probably end up being another one of my favorite albums released in 2020.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
