Alive After Five: Hollow Wood 

June 10, The Grove

There's a bit o' the Irish lilt to Adam Stip's vocals—akin to the vulnerable warble of Bright Eyes-era Conor Oberst—but when the Hollow Wood frontman belts it out, his tremolo turns into a throaty roar. Hollow Wood performances traverse a broad stylistic landscape, from contemplative, dreamy shoegazers to anthems filled with shouts, claps, chants and cymbal-cracking percussion.

The six-member four-piece band told Boise Weekly in 2013 that its sound taps into "that folk-kind of vein," but, Stip added, "I think it's a lot more intense. We try to be as powerful as we can. We kinda yell a lot I guess."

Hollow Wood will bring its homegrown brand of "earnest and truthful music" to Alive After Five on June 10. In its epic nine-minute roof-raiser "Little Bird," Hollow Wood sings, "It's half-past 9 and still God has not shown." We can't speak for the Big Guy, but we'll be sure to show no later than half-past 5.
