drunken ramblings: hallelujah the hills’ have you ever done something evil

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 29th, 2014


hallelujah the hills….. so here we are again. your 2012 record, no one knows what happens next, ended up at number 3 on my favorite records of that year. looking back, knowing what i know now about that record, it maybe should’ve been number one. you know why? i still listen to it all the fucking time. here’s their deal, you may listen to one of their records, once. thats fine, you do whatever you want, but if you’re paying attention at all, you’ll realize something is there, and you’ll keep coming back. they make music that is equivalent to crack. i have never tried crack, but ive seen some documentaries, so im pretty much an expert. that first listen, it will burrow into your brain, or soul, or wherever you keep the precious. you probably wont even realize that it has happened, and thats the beauty of hallelujah the hills. that first time, you may not be impressed, but theres that hook, or lyric that will bring you back. then from there, its not one lyric, its 10, its not one hook, but 20…. this has been my experience with this band. their newest, and definitely greatest, have you ever done something evil, admittedly took about 3/4 listens to understand and its no way as immediately as “accessible” as “no one…” but its in the fucking sauce! they are not a band you’re just going to throw on for a good time, even though its a hell of a ride, they just aint that kind of band. ryan walsh is a master lyricist, his lyrics may seem to mean nothing, sometimes at least, but they can absolutely crush you. you can look at it, and so “oh thats nice” or look a little longer, and be like “holy shit!” i think i said last year that they were hitting their stride, but with this record, i will say they are pulling away from just about every band out there. if it doesnt continue to be and end up my favorite record of the year, i would be so very very very surprised.

pinebocks “lena”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 28th, 2014


according to their twitter bio, pinebocks, are chicago’s worst band, and the best band in the world. no matter how you look/listen to pinebocks, they make some damn fine music. well, they’ve, managed to at least make 2 great songs. i may even be able to do that, so its not really saying all that much, but i trust their talent more than mine. they just release a two song something via their bandcamp page, and i cant recommend it enough. you can pay 500 bucks for the two songs, perks includeded!, or if youre a cheap ass you can download it for free. they’re playing at one of my old favorite haunts, beat kitchen on 6.17. if youre in the area, do check them out.

circulatory system “stars and molecules”

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 26th, 2014


pretty excited about this release, circulatory system’s mosiacs within mosiacs which is due out on 6.24 on cloud recordings. been a huge fan of all three of their previous releases, but even moreso of will cullen hart’s previous band, olivia tremor control. keep in mind thats not taking anything away from what he’s done with circulatory system, but olivia’s black foilage and music from the unrealized film script, dusk at cubist castle are both epic records. if you’ve never heard either, check out “i have floated” down there, and i recommend listening with headphones. anyway, circulatory system is also going to be on tour with neutral milk hotel this summer so make sure you check out the cloud recordings website.

strand of oaks “shut in”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 21st, 2014


“i lose my faith in people, why even take the time? youve got your problems, i’ve got mine.” for the last 4/5 years, i honestly dont even know how many years its been, but timothy showalter has been one of my favorite artists for a good amount of time now. the first time i heard “end in flames” off his strand of oaks debut leave ruin i knew this guy and his music would play a huge part in my life. every record, leave ruin, pope killdragon and dark shores, i believe ended up in my top 5/10 of the year. timothy’s new record heal is due on dead oceans on 6.24. i was hoping to have the record in my mitts, by now, but sadly tis not the case. even after 9 years of music “blogging” i still cant get on some labels distribution lists. oh well, not too bitter. i kid, i kid, kind of. no doubt this will be one of my favorite records of the year.
