Hallelujah the Hills - "Are We Failing?"

Hallelujah the Hills released their ridiculously great A Band is Something to Figure Out just last month. Usually a band will take some time to bask in the glory of the new album, tour it around some, and not even think about getting back into the studio. Hallelujah the Hills decided to immediately go back into the studio, and now have a new EP, Movement Scorekeepers, due out on July 8.

While A Band is Something to Figure Out is filled with anthems destined for superstardom, "Are We Failing?" is decidedly smaller and more indie. It reminds me of really early solo Lou Barlow, more Sentridoh than Sebadoh, but with better production. It's only 1:20 long, starting off with a blast of feedbacky noise, and the rest of the song is extraordinarily minimalist and sounding looped, even though I don't think it is.

Movement Scorekeepers is due out July 8 on Jealous Butcher Records. You can listen to "Are We Failing?" below, and preorder the EP here. For more on Hallelujah the Hills, check out their website. You can also find their current tour dates below.
