holly house news

Things have quieted down over here at Holly House, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some great news to tell you about.

• Caitlin Rose has been on the road over a year now and people are saying great things about her record, Own Side Now.

Check out this video for her song “Own Side”:

• Tristen has also been out on the road pushing her new record, Charlatans at the Garden Gate, and she was just added to the Bonnaroo 2011 lineup.

Here’s her video for “Baby Drugs”, which was featured on Rolling Stone:

 

 
• And The Relatives’ first LP, Green Machinery, was released in November. They released 3 videos to accompany the vinyl LP, which you can order online or buy on sale at Grimey’s:

 

 

 

 
• Look for Eureka Gold’s latest masterpiece, Land of Imaginary Suffering, to be released soon. You can preview a few tracks here.

Tristen releases Charlatans At The Garden Gate tomorrow 2.1.11

After a long wait, we can finally get our hands on Tristen’s debut LP Charlatans At The Garden Gate tomorrow. Go to American Myth Recordings to order your copy of the vinyl today.

and the relatives release Green Machinery!

After almost a year in production, and the relatives release Green Machinery today. It features the incredible talents of Arlo Hall, Caitlin Rose, Tristen, Jordan Caress, Buddy Hughen, Larissa Maestro, and Dan Sommers. You can purchase the entire album digitally for $3  at their Bandcamp site. Keep in mind that the record was produced with vinyl in mind, and that the band thinks that it is the best way to hear the songs. You can buy the Limited Edition vinyl from their Bandcamp site or from Grimey’s New & Preloved Music for $10. The band plans to release 3 videos to accompany the record in the next month or so.

The Good News

A few weeks ago I got turned on to a great band from Vancouver BC, The Good News. The lead singer reminds me of Craig Finn from The Hold Steady while the music is some solid kick ass pop. Driving songs with super hooky choruses are just a couple of this group’s strengths.

Here are a couple of my favorite songs:

Hopefully I’ll be able to catch one of their shows when I’m in Vancouver later this summer.

(ps While looking for a pic of the band, I came across this blog post which had posted the same songs as I have here. Funny and coincidental, but I swear I picked these out of the 2 EPs I got.  I guess we just have similar taste :) The video I did find there.)

Record Store Day / New Bows and Arrows track

Tomorrow is April 17th and that means it’s Record Store Day. We think you should scoot your tush on down to Grimey’s and pick up some rad tuneage. They’re gonna have sales, bands playing, beer, and all kind of good times.

We recommend you get there a little before 1 PM and check out Bows and Arrows. We’ve seen them a couple of times and they’re really good. Pick up their brand new 7″ Let’s Take On the Night while you’re at it. Here’s the opening track from the record.

new music! holly house & american songwriter magazine

Back in August, American Songwriter asked Holly House to participate in their “On My Deathbed” contest. Each band in Holly House was asked to record the song they would like to hear on their deathbed.

On September 20, 2009, all five bands piled into Eastwood Salon for a marathon day of recording. Steve Martin was at the helm pushing the faders (and he did a marvelous job). Beer was drank, pizza was eaten, and jams were had. For 7 straight hours everyone put their nose to the grindstone whilst plucking and vocalizing. At the end of the day, all were exhausted but pleased with the results.

And now, without further ado….. here are the tracks:
