Some Dark Holler — Hollow Chest
Some Dark Holler first grabbed my attention when I saw their video on Couch by Couchwest. If you watch it, you’ll be able to see why.
Hollow Chestis the band’s first full-length album, and it is certainly a harbinger of great things to come. Some Dark Holler’s stories of shattered souls and redemption are enough to give us all pause as we go about the course of our busy day. The album shows an extensive emotional range, and the band hits upon each note perfectly. The songs are as restrained as they are powerful, and the catchy melodies will ensure that each song is seared into your memory.
If you’re someone who’s kind of iffy about folk music and stumbled on this blog for some reason, I’d point you to this album. I am willing to stake my reputation on this sentence: every note on here is perfect. And if you still decide you don’t like roots music after this, then you must not like music.
