Boston’s Hallelujah the Hills released their fifth album, A Band is Something to Figure Out, back in April, and more recently released a 7” EP of six one-minute songs, Movement Scorekeepers. On them, songwriter and frontman Ryan Walsh continues his trend toward balancing the literate (but don’t call them literary!) and the fun aspects in their music that makes them unique. Though the modern realities of making indie rock (such as, you know, having to have “real” jobs outside of music) have gotten in the way of much touring (something to figure out, indeed!), the band finally managed to do a small run of east coast dates in support of the records recently, including a stop in DC at the Black Cat backstage.
