Review

"One of the most authentic post-punk releases in quite awhile. No mere revivalists, (with) an ethereal dreamlike quality". --Post-Punk.com

Product Description

Bell Hollow make bittersweet mood music, singing dreamy songs both melodic and mysterious. Formed in February 2003, the Brooklyn-based quartet are inspired by the atmospheric British rock of the Eighties as well as new wave and shoe gaze. The band builds on authentic experience in these genres; bassist Christopher Bollman and guitarist Greg Fasolino's groups The Naked and the Dead and The Children's Zoo were part of NYC's underground scene in the '80s and Aussie native Hayden Millsteed once drummed for his infamous countrymen Lubricated Goat. In 2006 the boys went into Brooklyn's Seaside Lounge studios with producer Hillary Johnson (Jeff Buckley, The Prids, Michael Gira) to record their first EP Sons of the Burgess Shale.

Format:Audio CD
As one of the members of Bell Hollow, I am proud of this recording but don't feel I ought to comment personally. Here's some reviews that might elucidate what's cool about the EP:

"While so many latter-day post-punk bands fall all over themselves trying to mimic the more danceable moments of a Gang of Four record, Bell Hollow chooses to embrace atmosphere and mood. The act's songs -- which sound like the Chameleons playing haunted tunes in an abandoned church -- are filled with otherworldly melodies and warmed by urgent rhythms." - Westword

"On Sons of the Burgess Shale, Bell Hollow capture the sonic spirit of 80s British post-punk and alt rock. Think Echo and the Bunnymen, think The Chameleons, think a dash of shoegaze and The Smiths, and yet Sons of the Burgess Shale has its own essential character. Think of this as a continuation of that musical vein, not a revival. This is atmospheric rock to burn love letters to." - LiarSociety

"Bell Hollow is serious music. Rich and layered, the sound is a blend of steady drumming, dramatic basslines, subtle and equally salient synthesizers. The finished product is, in effect, both emotionally probing and light as a feather on the ears. Brit pop influences offer hope to misbegotten Smiths and New Order devotees. Nevertheless, Bell Hollow can hardly be considered a revivalist flash in the pan. The music culminates in a moving crash of tempo and expressive sound all their own. Bell Hollow achieves a beautiful sadness that is sure to be lauded by melancholic rockers, young and old." - The Deli Magazine

"The mood and guitar playing on 'Sons Of The Burgess Shale' will remind many of us of myriad guitar bands we adored as kids, but it's also the best kind of dark-hued, reflective, guitar-driven vocal music.
