Holy exclusive album stream, Batman! I first hyped Holy Vessels back in early August, when the Brighton-based quintet premiered “Springtime Bloom.” It showcased the “effortless, country-tinged psychedelia” that Holy Vessels has captured on their debut album, Last Orders At The Marshall Arms.
From folksier cuts like opener “Golden Hair” through more edgy efforts like “Queen of Alimony” and “Jaycee,” there are different sounds to be enjoyed on Holy Vessel’s debut. Where one track reminds me a bit of Mumford & Sons, another gives this more nostalgic, Rolling Stones type of vibe. These are not meant as direct comparisons, but definitely as compliments.
As Brighton Source Magazine put it:
“Not only had [Holy Vessels] nailed that country rock sound, they’d also written songs that were so catchy they lodged in your brain as instant classics.”
