The Austin band Holy Wave didn’t shy from the task of warming up the Music Hall of Williamsburg crowd last month before GOAT’s epic performance (that one here). Rocking a dense, intricate psychedelic style reminiscent of bands like The Black Angels and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, the band played material from their current release, Evil Hits (a combination of their The Evil Has Landed and Knife Hits EPs) plus new material that we hope will see the light of day soon. Set against the backdrop of swirling live light projections, the band gave us a taste of what they had in store for the Austin Psych Fest, which they played later that week, and gave us an appropriate intro to the wild GOAT set that was to follow.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the GOAT recording, with MBHO microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
