Hallelujah the Hills - "Folk Music Is Insane"

Photo by Courtney Brooke Hall
Boston's Hallelujah the Hills have a new single, and it's everything we hoped for. "Folk Music Is Insane" is a rollicking blend of near-folk and near-noise rock. For the majority of the song, it's a rambling folk rock number, with plenty of piano and fiddle. It would never be confused with traditional folk, but it's on the lines of more mainstream modern folk without sounding pop. And then these odd and great flourishes of noise come hammering in. It's these two parts that sound completely different from each other yet blend together perfectly that makes "Folk Music Is Insane" an instant favorite for us.

You can listen to "Folk Music Is Insane" below. I'm You, the seventh album from Hallelujah the Hills [How on Earth has one of my "new" bands released seven albums already?], will be out sometime in the Fall. For more on Hallelujah the Hills, check out their website.
