CD Review: Aliver Hall 

Live Summer and Fall 2011


Last year's debut, Welcome to Aliver Hall, proved that this Akron jam band could noodle something fierce in the studio. Their first live album proves that they rock even harder when they're onstage. And they save their best stuff for the live show. Songs like "Trainwreck>IWBH" smash multiple tunes into big, boogie-friendly locomotives of epic psych rock, puffing out clouds of wah-wah guitars, funk percussion, and high-pitched, harmonizing vocals. The five-track Live Summer and Fall 2011 was recorded at the Grog Shop and Musica with keyboardist Paulie Silvidi, who's since left the band. He warms up Aliver Hall without losing their knack for fist-pounding guitar work ("Lines") or getting all jazzy weird ("Space>Crazy"). — Keith Gribbins
