Album Notes
Tucked just inside the Ky border, hailing from the south banks of the Ohio, Hilltop Distillery creates music consisting of not only tones and rhythms, but solace and vigor. The trio consisting of Joe Burns, Andy Perkins and Joe Thompson, have collaborated in the hills of Florence, KY to create the second record of the groups discography:...died in the woods, for State Bird Records. Thriving on ever changing phrases of melody, noise and rhythm, Hilltop creates a sound that realizes new shapes and forms each performance.

Loved it! Funky/Fresh!
Especially love to listen late at night when I'm feeling kinda freaky....

Experimental Northern Kentucky-based trio Hilltop Distillery have released their
Experimental Northern Kentucky-based trio Hilltop Distillery have released their second full-length, ... Died In the Woods, on their own State Bird Records. The band formed in 1998 and features Joe Burns, Andy Perkins and Joe Thompson, who operate the Commonwealth Audio studios in Florence, Ky.

On the largely-instrumental Died, the band shows an inventive, winding aesthetic that is artful and hypnotic, meshing together creative rhythms and gloriously intertwined guitars. Using a guitar/bass/drum base (with other juicy additives thrown in throughout), the band creates fluid, textural compositions that sound tailor-made for movie soundtracks. The fluttering guitar riff and creeping crawl of "Ky. Suite," the moaning string sounds and plunking music box feel of "The Need to Stand Straight," the manic, ominous mayhem of "8 Ohm," and the jerking, angular outburst of "1st of the Month," each craftily arranged and skillfully pulled off, are vivid and visceral, conjuring different moods and emotions with each track. Streaming free-form yet seemingly carefully developed, Hilltop Distillery's aural concoctions are refreshingly free of pretense and contrivance.
