It’s hot as hell here in L.A. — rock & roll is not only needed, it’s damn near warranted. Such being the case, we’re pretty excited for Oakley Hall’s new LP, I’ll Follow You, as last summer’s Gypsum Strings was a mainstay both on the home stereo as well as both A.D. radio shows. In particular the album’s opener “Confidence Man,” as the tracks spidery guitar intro sounded like some kind of bastardized, basement, indie version of Iron Maiden. But, in a good way. Savvy?
For those unfamiliar with the Brooklyn band, imagine a modern take on rural edged ’70s rock & roll filtered through three decades of post-punk and ’90s, guitar oriented, indie-rock. Album drops September 11th on Merge Records — stay tuned for a review.
