Hallelujah the Hills - Colonial Drones (Misra Records 2009)

Hallelujah the Hills have a new lp out, called “Colonial Drones.” It’s their second full-length, following “Collective Psychosis Begone” from 2007 and the “Prepare to Qualify” ep from last year (which, by the way, you can still download for free, making it without a doubt the biggest and best bargain in all of Boston rock, 2008).

No real surprises, here, stylistically speaking. Still the same great rock and roll, lots of instruments going at once, sing-along/shout-along vocals, intelligent and often funny lyrics. Same as on the previous releases. But this new release is the band’s best yet, precisely because of its consistency: 13 tracks, running for nearly an hour, all of them really good, quite a few of them really great.

And, guess what? You can download two of the best, “Blank Passports” and “Classic Tapes,” for free, right from the band’s website.
