Bonus MP3: Here Holy Spain - "Trouble Is"

Born in the tradition of the Toadies and Baboon, Here Holy Spain is out to prove (at least locally) that punk--or rather, that the form of music that passes for punk nowadays--isn't dead.

The trio's debut full length, Manic, hits the streets April 7th, but since Here Holy Spain plays the Doublewide on Saturday night, we at DC9 thought you might want an early preview of the album. Check out the album's lead-off track. It packs a wallop.

Here Holy Spain -- "Trouble Is"

It does my heart good to know that three chords and a lot of anger can still produce such pleasing sounds. Thanks to Erv over at Idol Records for sending the track along. I think I might just have to catch this group on Saturday night...
