Live albums can be hit or miss. Some capture the raw heart and soul of the concert setting. Others sound like your favorite band playing in a cave.
Since the quarantine has started one thing I’ve really missed, and probably will for a long time, is live music. So I’ve been searching out recordings of some of my favorite bands.
Today I want to feature a four piece rock band from Portland Oregon named Holy Grove. This is dusty biker rock, mixed with Sabbath riffs and psychedelic meanderings. Like a dinosaur stomping around on LSD. All topped off with a megaton of soulful vocals provided by powerhouse singer Andrea Vidal.
Holy Grove played a hometown festival and recorded the set, six songs from it were released as an EP. The sound and the performance are all spot on. I can smell the PBR, sweat, denim, and weed through the speakers. Crank this up and take a sonic trip with Holy Grove at one of the more popular small club destinations around, The World Famous Kenton Club
