Hallelujah the Hills were recently mentioned in the New York Times in a feature titled “A Presidential Pub Crawl.” Check out the section under “Charlie’s Kitchen” and you’ll find the following:
“’Everybody goes to Charlie’s,’ said Helen Metros, who at 83 has been waiting tables there for 54 years. She recalled slinging burger specials to Mr. Bush and countless other political names. ‘Some students can be know-it-alls,’ she said, but Mr. Bush was ‘always a gentleman.’ On the main floor, Charlie’s has tables with distinctive red-and-black tops and the aura of a classic dive. Head upstairs for a more bar-like feeling and a jukebox featuring local bands like Hallelujah the Hills. Jaap Overgaag, the manager, said that people try to persuade him to move to a digital jukebox, but he’s resisted since the smaller local acts would be excluded. Try the double cheeseburger.”
Hey, awesome. Boston’s favorite sons are busy at work on music videos, recordings, and more. Also, dig the new Spotify playlist HtH frontman Ryan Walsh just put together [link]. HtH!
This Tuesday, May 7, Boston, MA’s Hallelujah the Hills will release Portrait of the Artist as a Young Trashcan. According to HtH, the album “collects the singles, B-sides, and unreleased material from Hallelujah The Hills’ storied ‘career’ and lovingly places it all together in an order that plays out like the double album they never released. Much of the material is brand new, with five songs coming out in 2013, which is, as we know, a year that isn’t even half over. The lead-off singles ‘Honey, Don’t It All Seem So Phony’ and ‘Confessions Of An Ex-Ghost’ waste no time ratcheting up the stakes, volume, and storytelling the band has often been accused of.”
Featured on POTAAAYT is a remix of “Wave Backwards to Massachusetts” off HtH’s (Misra) debut Collective Psychosis Begone. Also included are songs from Prepare to Qualify – an EP that was released during the band’s tenure with Misra. Support HtH. They are a phenomenal band.
Boston sons Hallelujah the Hills have released a new single – “The Three Minute Mark” b/w “Meet Me In The Car.” While Misra did not release these two songs (they are self-released), the label did release HtH’s debut and sophomore albums – Collective Psychosis Begone and Colonial Drones, respectively. We are supporters of HtH. Also, dig this piece Captain’s Dead did on Hallelujah the Hills and the new single. Thanks to Greg and CD for all their support! Lastly, go see HtH live this week:
