The best kept secret in music


"Review of {Inside}Out"

Hilliard is a Pennsylvania alternative to the sold-out Pixies reunion gigs. Why? Because they’re just as refreshing and exciting as hearing The Pixies live or otherwise. Not only that but they may make the more snobbish of critics remember the praise they heaped onto Dinosaur Jr. back in the early ‘90s. Spawning frantic indie rockers that complement one another throughout the entirety of the album, Hilliard is to great indie what J. Lo is to big booty. And yes they’re more deserving of cheesy metaphors than most underground bands.

Self Titled EP


Feeling a bit camera shy


Welcome to the home of Philadelphia’s secret sons of rock n’ roll. Welcome to Hilliard. Hilliard has been shoving their slightly off-center brand of rock down Philly’s throat since the dawn of the new millennium. They’re a four-piece band indulging in a frantic blend of musical genres that leaves a palatable ringing in the ears. The main ingredient? Hit the archives and dust off the records from the early days of indie-rock. Think the Pixies, Camper Van Beethoven, and Dinosaur Jr. Influence has its privileges and Hilliard has employed more than angular riffs and volatile vocals, they’ve also used the D.I.Y. mentality of these classic groups before The Alternative Press told you it was cool. So if you’re looking for a welcome relief from your workday of morning zoos, talk radio, easy listening, and static contorted AM radio then you’re in the right place. Ride the tsunami with Philly’s own recluses of rock. Join Hilliard.
