Holler, Wild Rose! set to play World Cafe Live

Holler Wild Rose

Having just been selected as Filter Magazine's, "Undiscovered Artist Of The Month" for March 2008, Backlight Records recording artists Holler, Wild Rose! will be bringing their shoegaze-influenced, ambient post-rock back to World Cafe Live! for a concert with Aquaport on April 25th, 2008 at 8:00pm.

Holler, Wild Rose!'s debut album 'Our Little Hymnal' was created over two years and released in September of 2007. Featured as a Napster (US) and iTunes Australia Staff Pick on the day of release, the album has gone on to receive significant airplay on over 150 US and Canadian stations including regular spins on stations such as KCRW, WXPN, WBOS, XM Satellite Radio and Bagel Radio. Additionally, 'Our Little Hymnal' is also currently being heard on radio stations in Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Australia and The United Kingdom.

In the few months after the release, Holler, Wild Rose! has been featured on NPR's Second Stage, in Performing Songwriter Magazine, as a Sonicbids Spotlight Artist, a CMJ Festival 2007 Artist of the week and Mathieu Schreyer of KCRW selected 'Our Little Hymnal' as one of his top 10 albums of 2007.

Holler Wild Rose!'s song "Marylawn Hair" was featured as part of the Filter Magazine "Subway Series" Compilation released for CMJ 2007 (alongside artists such as PJ Harvey, Joy Division, Counting Crows and Oslo) and their song "Sun Vines" is included in the 2008 TEVA Anthology Vol. 6 (with Iron & Wine, Nada Surf, Sia and Dave Matthews).

Performing Songwriter Magazine had this to say about Our Little Hymnal:

"I don't recommend doing anything else - such as reading, writing or dusting - when listening to Our Little Hymnal...with a voice somewhere between Jim James, Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley, lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist John Mosloskie leads this exceptional band through dramatic, melodic twists and turns that will keep you staring - yes, staring - at the speaker to catch what will happen next. Imagine if Explosions In the Sky had a lead vocalist, and you're getting close."

Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover said:

"Few bands match their wall of guitar, wide-screen wash...one bets it's awesome live, too."

Holler, Wild Rose!'s recent performance at Brooklyn's Luna Lounge received a glowing review from influential Brooklyn Music Blog MusicSlut, who stated:

"HWR overwhelmingly impressed me with their brief-yet-strapping set last night at Brooklyn's Luna Lounge. Following the adage of 'less talk, more rock', Holler Wild Rose stormed through about half of Hymnal with zeal, precision and arrant finesse. With countless young acts heavily influenced by early '90s shoegaze, it's inspiring to hear a band that can meticulously highlight the genre's brightest moments all the while adding a layer of richness that is entirely their own into the grand melting pot."
