Times New Viking with Hallelujah the Hills and the Axemen

Great Scott (Boston, Mass.), Saturday, Nov. 21

 

Newly signed to Matador and veterans of Siltbreeze, the Columbus, Ohio-based Times New Viking brought its stripped-down to the raw, garage blast to Boston. Imagine a songbook based on the pure distillation of "Louie, Louie," boiled down to a sticky black lump, with a dash of strychine via the Sonics, perfect for singing along (or, better, shouting along). Boston's own Hallelujah the Hills wrapped up a five week tour and were tighter than Glenn Beck's throbbing forehead vein. The band has improved much since I saw it play, opening for Silver Jews in 2008. The band played a good passel of songs with tons of energy. Opening honors were handled by New Zealand's the Axemen, making what I believe is their first ever trip to tour the States, despite being founded in 1981. They are not the "Dunedin Sound" type of band, so don't go expecting jangly pop like the stuff by the Chills. It was a multi-headed beast of garage rock, some '60s-influenced numbers and even a hardcore tune tossed into the mix.
