Ah Holly Fam'ly: Your Body Will Become An Anchor

Ah Holly Fam’ly’s music is textural, thick, and laden with lots of disparate, delicate acoustics that build into a high and mighty wall of sound. No singing voice is without idiosyncracy or humanity. Nothing is cloying here, nothing forced. There’s a slew of instruments — woodwinds, cellos, guitars, banjos, percussion, theremin (saw?) — none overshadowing or upstaging the other. The songs are at times rollicking and smart-alecky, at times morose and nostalgic. Without ever being tied to a convenient mood or atmosphere, the pieces fit. They dovetail nicely. They form a whole that fulfills me in a way only a family can. That is, imperfectly — but warmly, full of love and care.
