On a roll

When I go bowling with bands, it’s usually to extract them from their natural habitat and place them in a controlled environment for study. In the case of my recent bowling date with Hallelujah the Hills, though, my aim was true. I just wanted to bowl.

Boston Under Cover: Hallelujah The Hills do the Stairs on Daytrotter; Ireland discovers Miltown

Boston Under Cover: Hallelujah The Hills do the Stairs on Daytrotter; Ireland discovers Miltown


 

We tried to start this thing a long time ago where we'd have Boston bands cover other Boston bands. Which perhaps is exactly the kind of incestuousness that keeps Boston so fucking . . . y'know, BOSTON. The idea more or less ran its course, although you might want to check back next week because we're bringing it back in a big way. In the meantime, this new HALLELUJAH THE HILLS track sort of almost doesn't count, since it's Ryan Walsh playing a song from his old band the Stairs, but shit, we LOVED the Stairs and hopefully now Daytrotter kids will, too. More after the jump.
