MP3 of the Week: Hallelujah The Hills "Nightingale Lightning (Live)"

Sometime this year, we’ll get a fresh new studio album from HALLELUJAH THE HILLS. Until then, there’s this internet-only live cut of “Nightingale Lightning,” which they recorded last summer on Woody Guthrie’s birthday at a gig in Toronto while on tour with Titus Andronicus. The show has a special place in the hearts of the folksy rock band after they were detained by the border patrol for more than three hours and their van was torn to shreds, en route back to the States. Although “Nightingale” explodes with Jah Hills’ usual rusted-can exuberance, perhaps the best part is right at the start: an audience member remarks, “They sound like — ,” before the guitars cut in, drowning her out in a wall of sound. Finish her sentiment by downloading the MP3 below, and catch a closer-to-home preview of new material when Hallelujah the Hills play T.T. the Bear’s in Cambridge on January 18.
