Hills

Been listening to these guys a lot the last week or so: Hills.

Psychedelia / Fuzz / Drone rock from Sweden.

If you like Black Angels, Six Organs of Admittance, or the Velvet Underground, it has a taste of all of them.


Hills wrote:These four tracks sit deeply buried in oblivion, bones, skin, sweat, grooved with fearless intensity with no diminution of the interplay, spontaneity and feeling onstage, the band are entombed in mantric repetition while the vapour trail of The Byrds ‘Untitled’ epic;
‘Eight Miles High’ descend into an Elysian Field, where the dead enjoy happy tranquility, until they come to life and rise up again.

Alive in Roadburn summons the spirits of Swedish Midsummer celebration, the welcoming of the light of the longest day, as a people who have endured the long dark winter, their celebration of light, steeped in pagan roots are absorbed into the bands psyche and these tracks sit like Cairns on the Swedish landscape, built as monuments to Hills.

The Hills are very much Alive and Burning.

These guys are still very high in my rotation. Fantastic for anything where getting lost in the music helps- or where the music helps you get lost in something else.

I have really enjoyed putting a bunch of this on while on a road trip, playing strategy games, painting, or any such thing. Another great full album you can can get for peanuts on bandcamp if you want to support them:
