New Canadiana :: J Riley Hill – J Riley Hill


J Riley Hill - J Riley Hill (cover)
After releasing eight albums in eight weeks, J Riley Hill took a full year to record this whacked-out studio pop — heaping on synthesizers, banjos and trombones and wrapping the full-length up with a guitar solo finale worthy of sending you soaring over rainbows. Hill’s deft wordplay jumps around from losing the game to the impossibility of you experiencing his dreams to tearing off your skin and jumping in the fire cuz it feels so good. Serious WTF stuff that feels great bouncing around your intestines.

  1. Weird is not really the correct word for J Riley Hill. Try Eclectic, Creative, Passionate; use of weird implies outsider music which is a whole other genre.

    • We’ve never meant ‘weird’ in a derisive or ‘outsider’ way. In fact, we use it as a catch-all term to capture the comma-delimited list of adjectives you’ve outlined above.

      Hearts,
