The Hollows’ new full-length, BETWEEN THE WATER AND THE WONDER WHEEL, will be released on June 3rd. The album was tracked at The Bunker in Brooklyn with producer John Siket (Sonic Youth, Phish, Yo La Tengo, Dave Matthews Band), engineered by James Frazee (Beck, Patti Smith, Esperanza Spalding), and mastered by Fred Kevorkian (Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams, The White Stripes). When you first see this scruffy ensemble of multi-instrumentalists take the stage, you will find them out of place. They will appear to be a ragtag set of traveling performers, accustomed to closing out barn dances and just as likely to steal your prize-winning cow as to wake up next to your sister in a hayloft. But when the first notes reach your ears, it will seem to you that the sound of The Hollows is uniquely New York: a contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all of its roots, twists them around, and produces something else, something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang.
