Next Friday, Queens outfit Hollis Brown, release their wonderful new album, “Ozone Park” via Mascot. We liked it. A lot, with out review saying: “You want something? Go get it. Don’t procrastinate.” That’s writ large through “Ozone Park” and it’s a message that will resonate, just like this record will. Wherever in the world you are from.” as we awarded it 9/10. to celebrate the release, we sat down Mike Montali (guitar/vocals) to find out what they liked to listen to on the road.

Dark side of the moon- Pink Floyd
Great songs. Great melody. Great sound. Of course Dark Side Of The Moon is considered one of the greatest albums ever made and for good reason, with bangers like “Great Gig In The Sky” making this an easy pick for the tour van. Everything in this record sounds incredible!!

 

Stadium Arcadium- Red Hot Chili Peppers
This double album is packed full of jams by Anthony Kiedis and company that fits any and all moods. From driving the California coast, to walking the streets of New York City. Each member of the band is highlighted and spotlighted, showing that Flea is one of the greatest bass players of all time, and watching John Frusciante turn into a Guitar God before your eyes.

Greatest Hits- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
This is one if the greatest body of works any songwriter in history has delivered. It is honest, pure, and rocking. The band makes it seem so easy and seamless, as songs like “Refugee” and “Free Falling” make a couple of chords feel like you are being invited into the greatest party in the world. Never compromising and always on point. This is the way music should sound.

Purple- Stone Temple Pilots
This album from top to bottom is all killer and no filler. It rocks, its got mood, and it will kick you in the face every once in awhile. The guitar riffs are epic, and Scott Weiland struts his best stuff here with songs like “Interstate Love Song” spear heading the album into all time classic territory.

Ziggy Stardust- David Bowie
Literally a perfect album all around. Not a bad note. Each song showcases a new level of brilliance and Bowie’s vocals are timeless. The recording sound is fantastic, and the mix takes it to the best parts of what T-Rex had going on around the same time. The fact that Bowie was able to make a pop album become a piece of art is a task that is still being sought after by the biggest artists on the planet. This album is amazing.
