HOLY WAVE, Monticule, Lainie & The Crows
Holy Wave are a band of multi-instrumentalists from Austin, TX. Originally from El Paso, the band’s sound has evolved into a unique blend of sun baked surf-psychedelia. Holy Wave creates a brand of psych that brings to mind fellow Texans like The 13th Floor Elevators and modern contemporaries like The Black Angels and Night Beats, dyed in carefully constructed noise with an attention to detail echoing the work of shoegaze influences like My Bloody Valentine and Spectrum.
The Reverberation Appreciation Society is proud to present Holy Waves Evil Hits which compiles 5 tracks from the bands 2011 LP Knife Hits and all 5 tracks off their 2012 EP The Evil Has Landed. “Evil Hits” will precede their upcoming LP to be released in April 2013.
What stands out about Holy Wave is the sonic textures they apply to make their sound pierce through the smoke-filled haze that engulfs most psych bands.
