A Season in Hell
A Season in Hell #127: The Y Axes
March 18, 2013 @ 8:00pm


I love having local bands in the studio, and The Y Axes made my night.

Now here's a young band, with a fresh pop sound, that's making it in the post-record label era. Let's celebrate young, fresh bands! I swear, if I could have hastened the death of the record label sooner I would have.

They have a CD release party at Bottom of the Hill this Wednesday, March 20th, for their EP Moon Rock.

I follow up their visit with some live tracks I've yet to share with you.
