Comprised of four innovative multi-instrumentalists with a knack for bizarre song structures, and yet a keen understanding of pop elements, the Colorado quartet defies labeling. Ian Cooke's cello tends to drive the songs, while Ian O'Dougherty and Whit Sibley take turns with the plodding, but interesting bass-lines. Uphollow's past touring experience with artists ranging from Hot Water Music and Fugazi to the Decemberists and Built to Spill makes perfect sense. When even the independent music scene starts to again fall into an era of conformity and stagnancy, Uphollow shines as a misfit, unable to be pigeonholed or categorized, brilliantly scathing to the monotony of their peers while modestly revealing themselves, via record, as simply a gang of friends with creativity as #1 on their agenda.
