A killer new Hallelujah the Hills instrumental album.
There are two things Boston's Hallelujah the Hills do incredibly well: Catchy roots based rock songs and experimental instrumental noise rock. Their sixth album, Against Electricty, was just released yesterday and it fits squarely in the latter category.
All kinds of interesting textures and atmospheres happening. HTH doesn’t bother really going for a particular Astral Weeks-y vibe and wisely avoids late-60s psych cliches – maybe the most overt “reference” is the (excellent) “Rayrunner” rave-up. I’ll let you guess what that one sounds like!
