I was absolutely astonished. This is a beautiful, visceral document made at the intersection of folk and indie-rock. Some of the most refreshing songs I've heard all year.
I also happened upon stunning new record from Hallelujah Hills, a band I knew little about, but already feel a deep-rooted connection, as if I’ve been listening for years.
If you thought the best of the decade was over you might want to think twice. I'm You is a rich and stunning slice of Americana rock 'n' roll and relatable, earnest storytelling.
Might well be the best one as a whole...buy the whole gorgeous record.
In the right circumstance, could let the rest of the world know what those of us in the area already learned.
9/10. Ties up everything they've been working towards into one glorious hour-long burst.
Somehow every song on “I’m You” has an equal-but-totally-different energy. Ryan Walsh is one of the only rock musicians capable of writing songs about writing songs.
A lot of the reviews, press and interviews for the band center around me, but I wanted to write a little something about how incredible my bandmates are as collaborators and friends.
A lyrical masterpiece.
A conversation with Hallelujah the Hills at their cozy practice space.
Album of the Year
The band's magnum opus.
A Ginsberg-esque telling of present day America backed by a band with a similar chaotic synchronicity as the band from Ziggy Stardust.
Ryan Walsh has always held an interest in history and folk music. Please enjoy this conversation with one of my favorite humans.
It’s everything we hoped for.
