Every single Friday evening, RVA Mag brings you a splendiferously outstanding playlist curated by influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This week we’re turning the spotlight on Richmond’s own Holy Roller, who’ll be celebrating the release of their self-titled debut album this Saturday night at The Camel. Having previously made somewhat of a name for themselves around town as Big Mama Shakes, they’ve returned with a new name and a slightly redone lineup, but still the same great soulful alt-rock Americana sound.
Their playlist is a treat for the exact same sort of music fan who’s going to love Holy Roller themselves, bringing us some excellent sounds drawing from American traditions like blues, folk, and good ol’ rock n’ roll, while still keeping one foot planted firmly in the 21st century. Groove to this one all day tomorrow, then head to the Camel to celebrate their brand new album — more info on that show here.
Keep it light, Virginia.
