HELLSHOVEL: Hated by the Sun: CD

Sep 11, 2012

Hellshovel, from Montreal, is fronted by an ex-member of Demon’s Claws and also features drumming by garage rock troubadour Bloodshot Bill. Musically, this is a lo-fi garage rock record with heavy psych influences, and it’s really fucking good. Take any band out of the current wave of lo-fi garage rock bands, let’s say something like The Oh Sees for example, take all of the pretentiousness out of it, and cover it with a thick layer of ‘60s psych and you might be somewhere in the ballpark of this record. I can also hear some King Khan & BBQ influence here too. Recommended.
