If you like old-school music, like Cream and the like, then you’re going to dig The Black Hollies. I listened to this stuff for the first time today and I have to say, I’m hooked.
It’s a totally groovy older sounding music. I guess old is the new black, eh? Their myspace page has some more cool music by them, too, be sure to have a listen….you’ll be glad you did. Also, their logo screams “60’s dope smokin’ era”, don’t you tthink?
Check out the press release:
Jersey City gutter-psychsters The Black Hollies will release Casting Shadows, the follow-up to 2006â€™s critically-adored Crimson Reflections, March 11th via New York imprint Ernest Jenning. Drawing on the sonic formula that convinced The L to call the quartet â€œthe best band currently making the rounds in NYC,â€ Shadows will no doubt appeal to listeners with a fondness for legends like Cream, Syd-era Pink Floyd, The Yardbirds, or modern psych-rock paladins such as the Black Lips and the Warlocks.
