Album Review: Hillstomp's "Darker the Night"


"Now is time a for darker stuff!" yells Henry Kammerer, one-half of the Portland-based duo Hillstomp on the second track of their new album Darker the Night. And dark stuff is exactly what they give the listener.

The duo's third studio release - which will be available in stores July 20 - is crammed with 14 driving and dirty ballads of debauchery, and loaded with tales of embracing late night bouts of drinking, waking and repeating the process without the blink of an eye. The whole album has a very consistent brooding mood, with unique banjo rythms that take the forefront unashamed and relentless..

While firmly grounded in the blues, Hillstomp departs and adds many different influences, from folk to garage-punk, all expressed through a soulful intensity. Considering the band is known for its captivating live performances - replete with foot-stomping slide guitar riffs and John Johnson's ramshackle percussion hammering away on plastic buckets or whatever he can grab nearby, Darker the Night does not dissapoint, and invites everyone listening to join in and sing the songs of kissing the bottle and losing love without regret.

Weekend Warrior, June 2 - 4

Happy birthday USA! If you’re anything like Team America, then by now you're probably itching to find something that’s a little more “Fuck Yeah!” than the Goo Goo Dolls. [We think it’s time to get rid of the douchebag(s) stuck in the 90s booking this 4th of July Parkway thing.] And fortunately the Danger Danger crew have a red, white and blue celebration that’s sure to have you boogying your socks off in a stupor! The distorted beats and haunting tribal call of U.S. Girls will have you shaking your flag in a frenzy. Meanwhile the good ol’ boys behind Levee Drivers will be bringing out that drunken hillbilly in ya as they churn out a bit of Johnny Cash influenced Americana with their rockin’ country flare. Toss in some action packed sets from visiting bands like O’Death, Skeletonbreath (special nod to hometown boy Grandchildren’s Tris behind the drum set), and Drunken Tigers - add in an epic beer-BQ, and your sure to be seeing plenty of fireworks as well as stars and stripes (wait, who put the acid in my beer this time?). But don’t party too hard, because you won’t want to miss the dance beats happening across the street at Elena’s immediately afterwards. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 1pm, $5-$10, All Ages

Green Velvet @ Millenium Park

Curtis Jones (a.k.a. Cajmere and Green Velvet) can create some crazy beats, but when remixed by Felix Cartel it gets even more insane. His latest release as Green Velvet was released this week and is called Harmageddon.
