Hill and wood

March 12 at 11:00 PM

Hailing from Charlottesville, indie-rock sentries The Hill and Wood have been one of Virginia's most critically adored new-fangled bands for over two years. Led by Boston native Sam Bush, the band has shifted from their folk-pop roots and integrated themselves into a multifaceted and stratified sound comparable at times to the chamber-pop melodies of Belle & Sebastian, at other times the symphonic, orchestral swells of Bishop Allen and Wilco. The music's firm foundation is Bush's songwriting, deftly communicating the anxieties of expectation and the malaise of the modern identity, all the while uncovering rare and unexpected moments of relief.
