Boston-based Hallelujah the Hills will be stopping in CT in preparation for their fall US tour to support their upcoming second album Colonial Drones (out on Misra Records September 22nd). The band is going to be playing a few local shows around the CT/MA area, and if you haven’t already heard of them, take a bit of time to check them out. They have some really killer pop tunes, reminiscent of some of the dreamier middle-era Modest Mouse with some Bright Eyes styled vocals mixed with just a hint of freaky Akron/Family sing(or shout)-alongs. I think they're pretty damn good, and these two shows are a great opportunity to see an up and coming band.
Check out their Daytrotter Session to hear some really great live tracks.
Thursday, September 10, 2009 - The Space with locals Buried Next to the Horse (ethereal folk rock from Bethel) and Goodnight Blue Moon (huge group of roots rockers from New Haven.)
Saturday, September 12, 2009 - Cousin Larry's, with CA rockers Low Red Land and NYC post punkers Appomattox.
