Hey RUST fans we have a groovy new release to tell you about today. We’ve previously covered the synth scene in Minneapolis with bands like CLAPS and Aaron And The Sea – and those are both great groups well worth checking out – but if tuff guitarsey rock and roll is more your style, Pill Hill has just dropped their second full-length album It Tastes A Little Sweeter. Made up of Dan Fowlds, Judd Hildreth, Heath Henjum, Jacques Wait and Ben Glaros, Pill Hill kicks out the jams with a traditional big rock sound and an individual approach to lyrics and arrangements.
It Tastes A Little Sweeter is an album that reminds us how good a stright-up rock band can sound and feel. Just like back in the day. There’s a rawness here that is real and a style that is memorable and distinct. These guys remind us a lot of NC’s Temperance League who also deliver great, original Americana rock and similarly press on vinyl. RUST very highly recommends their 2012 self-titled album and It Tastes A Little Sweeter will be available digitally as well as on translucent butterscotch vinyl in honor of the 6th song on the album – Butterscotch House.
Pill Hill takes sage advice from the Petty-Springsteen recipes and then spices up their own style of rock and roll on It Tastes A Little Sweeter. This is a great, fresh band with serious depth of skill and writing ability. It Tastes A Little Sweeter reminds us about how awesome things were back in the day – and that today is a new day with fresh adventures and challenges to experience.
