Good news everyone! Our dear friends from Boston We Avalanche have finally released their new LP ‘Time Travels‘. We’ve been going to their shows for over a year now and have taken every opportunity to do so, because they are – this is not hyperbole - one of the great undiscovered bands of Boston.
For those who aren’t close enough to experience their incredibly moving live performances you can now experience one facet of We Avalanche via this brand new album. For those of you who do live in New England, dates for their latest shows are on their website.
Just look at that beautiful cover.
We cannot recommend these guys enough. Brady, Eric, and Zach are one of most engrossing and consistently excellent musical experiences we have had the pleasure of witnessing. See them now - the more intimate the venue the better – before their audience expands and a gap necessarily forms between them and the band.
We were saddened to discover that both Whitehaus and Gay Gardens were shut down recently by city authorities in our absence. We’ve played some excellent shows there and been present at even more of them.
In shutting down these two institutions, Boston is losing an important aspect of it’s musical culture. Both were places that could be relied upon to put on great shows, to provide a venue for touring bands in need of help, and often served as a place were people could feel comfortable expressing themselves to the fullest. The loss of such gifts make it all the more poignant.
We hope that, in time, the organizers of these venues will find a way to carry on the legacies of their wonderful institutions that have given so much to the local and national music communities.Thank you Whitehaus and thank you Gay Gardens for everything you’ve contributed. Your continual generosity has been greatly appreciated by everyone in the city with whom you crossed paths. Boston has become a richer place for having had you.
Here is the first of many videos from our performance at the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art. Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting more in the next week.
Here are some photos of Holiday Mountain during our performance at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. A big thanks to Michael Borgida and to everyone that came out that evening. It’s been the high point of our careers for sure. We couldn’t have done it all without you. Thank you so much.
Hi-res videos coming soon!
Holiday Mountain got a mention in The Boston Globe this Sunday hyping our upcoming performance at the Institute of Contemporary Art on August 16th as part of the Harborwalk Sounds Series:
“…this annual series on the waterfront is a good excuse to hear up-and-coming talent in a picturesque setting. On Aug. 16, be sure to catch Holiday Mountain, whose off-kilter songs mash up psychedelic rock, reggae, and whatever else frontwoman Laura Patiño thinks of.”
Can you wait? Neither can we.
We’re also playing in Kendall Square earlier in the day, so come check out both shows!
