The Hold Steady | Heaven is Whenever

the Hold Steady heaven is wheneverThe Hold Steady | Heaven is Whenever  | Vagrant Records 2010

The Hold Steady out of Brooklyn NY , a great rock band,  are an acquired taste and not for everybody, they require a discerning ear and a listener who appreciates lyrical content and being transported through a good story with a soundtrack , by an unlikely host, on this their newest  album “Heaven Is Whenever” they have developed more and bring us into an expanded definition of who “The Hold Steady” are becoming. They still provide us with many tracks with their signature rock style and meter but on this disc we are treated to more confident slower cuts that have a depth and expanse not explored as deeply on the previous disc “Stay Positive”. These slower numbers accentuate a growth for the band which comes with time and experience from familiarity with ones musical partners. As listeners we are granted a glimpse of a new direction for this band a less anthemic rock but possibly more fulfilling. Check out some samples below. (sorry we can’t provide full tracks right now as our partner is closing down next week).   Check Out The Hold Steady they might just be your flavor. We like em. In the age obsessed culture we live in this band is not full of 20 yr olds but rock they are.
