  • Summary: The latest album for the New York-based indie rock band was recorded in three days at Oneida's studio and Oneida's Kid Millions provided the drumming for the recording.

  1. Mojo
    Monstrous stoner-psych jams from, of all places, Williamsburg. [July 2010, p. 95]
  2. This isn’t an album to expand musical horizons, as much as it might expand a few minds. Yet it’s deeply enjoyable and more often than not thrilling to hear a band mouthing “We don’t care” over and over before showing two riff shaped fingers to the naysayers.
  3. Not only do they add urgency to familiar psychedelic rock templates, but they pay just as close attention to the quiet moments as the raging ones--each track on their self-titled Thrill Jockey debut displays a careful layering of sounds and atmospheres.
  4. 70
    White Hills have struck a riveting balance between heaviness and ethereality while proving space rock can still stimulate four decades after its Big Bang.
  5. All of this makes White Hills sound a bit generic and derivative, and I suppose it can be at times.
  6. White Hills may not be blazing any new musical pathways, but there is no denying that they’re good at what they do.
  7. All that said, it’s only about a third as bad as it sounds. It’s fairly tolerable as far as extreme self indulgence goes.
