NYC bands to check out: Hollands lands June residency at Pianos

Hollands music is packed full of twists and turns. Unexpected lyrical declarations and sideways turns suddenly give way to bent harmonies and surprising acoustic inventions... and somehow it all comes together in the simplest of manners. With lyrics like 'glory to god, i'd like to meet your mom,' Hollands is a band with the wit of Stephen Malkmus, and penchant for pop gold that might make Randy Newman envious. There's quite a bit going on here, but there's also an honest delivery to it all that keeps you in expectation the whole time. Make no mistake, Hollands may very well be that band to keep track of this year. See them when they host a Tuesday residency in June, upstairs at Pianos. - Mike Levine
