Musically, H-p1, White Hills second full-length for Thrill Jockey, expands on the explorations of previous albums in ambience, noise, and space rock all led by guitarist Dave W.'s blistering guitar solos. This is the most fully realized White Hills album to date and the one that takes them furthest from their pure space rock roots. It is also their most angry record. It is a reaction to what White Hills sees as government co-opted and controlled by corporations.
"A perfect space-rock storm of drone, mind-melting psychedelia, overdriven guitars and heavy bass, White Hills is the rightful heir to Hawkwind's massive legacy." – Goldmine
"Heads On Fire throws down grungy distorted layers of sludge that relentlessly churn along. It's neither subtle nor pretty, but god damn it rocks. They take the space rock template and inject it with a battered fucked-up New York punk spirit." --Drowned In Sound
Blazing, fuzzed-out Philly Indie Rock/Post-Hardcore
The Claymont DE. They channel both the raw early 20th century blues of the deep American South and the full on drone/noise of New Zealand's South Island & their X-Pressway kin. It is what Empty Shapes like to call a Dead C-style Blues.
