about

Hollerin’ the Spirit is the debut full length from Oakland rock quartet Real Life Rock & Roll Band. Recorded at the storied Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco in 2016, after a long incubation the band is excited to present their utopic visionary rock music on Oakland-based creative music label Geomancy.

The group applies minimalist process music techniques to country-tinged dual guitar riffs in the long tradition of Henry Flynt’s Nova’billy or Tetuzi Akiyama. This is not to say that the music is stale or placid, however. The quartet plays on the brink of collapse, interlocking grooves constantly threatening to fall apart completely. The bulk of Hollerin’ was recorded in a single day, all four members of the group in a room together, favoring the spirit of the music over the evasive monolith of perfection.

Equal turns unhinged and hypnotic, Hollerin’ the Spirit is an idiosyncratic journey guided by the ghosts of rock & roll. This is not music that is nostalgic for an era long-past or never-was, this is music looking towards the future, towards using our collective work to build a better world. Hollerin’ has been a long time coming, and now we’re finally ready.
