HOLDOUT, THE: Won’t Be Leaving Here Today: LP

Mar 15, 2022

The second LP by this Portland, Ore. outfit features interlocking vocals battling each other for dominance over elaborate, often non-repetitious marathon song structures. The only other band I can think of that shares a similar formula is the dearly departed State College, Pa. outfit Samuel, a group I have the utmost geeky fanboy reverence for—yet I think The Holdout are better musicians, more dynamic, and, most importantly, still out there, playing. Great stuff here. –Michael T. Fournier (theholdout.bandcamp.com)
