I wrote about the Violent Femmes’ brilliant sophomore LP, Hallowed Ground, for Up on the Sun. It’s not as lauded as the band’s self-titled debut, but I think it’s even better: darker, drawn from deeper lyrical waters, and musically evolved, folding in country and western, gospel, and free jazz influences. The band is playing luckymanconcerts' Summer Ends Music Festival on Sunday, September 28.
