The kids are crazy about a little band called Pinegrove.
The Montclair, NJ-based indie rockers have earned rave reviews on the festival circuit this summer, and we recently sung their praises on this very podcast. They’re a little twangy, a little emo, a little punk, and altogether adept at parlaying it all into life-affirming emotional catharsis. So we tracked down frontman Evan Stephens Hall at New York’s Panorama Festival last weekend.
“We have been -- on and off at our place in upstate New York -- recording and playing shows,” Hall says, reaffirming that the follow-up to last year’s Cardinal LP is indeed on the way, and Pinegrove is looking at March 2018 as an early target date and offered some other details on the new music. It's also going to be "a little longer" than Cardinal, which had, alas, eight tracks. Now we're talkin'.
