Altered Zones - Hills: "Rise Again"

ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTORS Biology of the Blogger

Though they don’t quite hit the same level of fiery abandon as their similarly named American brethren White Hills, these Swedish psych rangers do share quite a few things in common with the NYC noisemakers. Germinating from the same love of the Space Rock-Krautrock axis that brought forth Wooden Shjips, Expo ’70, and forefathers like Hawkwind and German Oak, Hills inhabit a low gravity, groove-oriented plateau of guitar-heavy psych that at times ventures into the same Eastern territories that UK guitar-slinger Rick Tomlinson’s explores in his Voice of the Seven Thunders project. Hills’ S/T debut sold out in a quick run of 300 and was a worthy piece to get your hands on; this will surely go just as quickly, and is just as much fun as its predecessor. –Andy French, Raven Sings The Blues
