SOUTHERN SLACKERS: Hills Rolling

With the combination of deadpan, laconic vocals, fiery, psychedelic leanings and a rootsy, acoustic foundation, Georgia’s Hills Rolling recall ‘90s college rock gods like Cracker, Soul Asylum or Jane’s Addiction. The band is actually just the project of singer-songwriter Trey McGriff, who wrote, arranged and produced every track of his debut, Sweet Tea, himself, as well as, the latest album, Something Delicious. And the album’s title is no misnomer; with a gritty Southern influence, his songs are catchy, riff-heavy doses of Southern hospitality that would perfectly accompany any scene of slacker shenanigans set below the Mason-Dixon line. Recommended uses: Scenes of college kids drinking beer on rooftops in summertime. Sun-dappled drives on the open road. - Rumblefish


Trey McGriff is Hills Rolling, and on his second album under the moniker he has not only made one of the most compact releases of the year (nine tracks at 27 minutes), but also one of the most enjoyable. Opening track “I Wake Up” instantly reminds one of A great old Lou Reed tune with its two-chord verse structure before melting down into a tasty, beautiful bridge. “Need It” is all retro and fuzzed-out with its garage band riffage – a new dose of “Nuggets” for the new generation. “Nothing Like Good Times” treads into Teenage Fanclub territory with its pretty acoustic guitars and lyrical pursuits. “Aditude” is electric, danceable, and just plain good rocking fun. McGriff is never flashy or tries anything he can’t. This is fun, smart pop that anyone can enjoy. Certainly one of the best DIY indie releases to come around in a while. Snap it up now, please.
