Pinegrove’s new album, 11:11 is an unqualified triumph, an album that seizes listeners with hook-filled songs imbuing feelings of warmth, urgency, and poetic beauty, even as it asks some of life’s big and difficult questions.
Formed by Evan Stephens Hall in 2010, Pinegrove has been for the most part, Hall and drummer, Zack Levine with as many as seven other musicians lending their skills as needed. Even Hall's father, Doug Hall can be counted on to add piano to some songs. With nods to the Flying Burrito Brothers and early Wilco, the album "spends equal
time on optimism, community, reaffirming what we are and how it’s our duty to
look out for one another” says singer Evan Stephens Hall. “There’s anger, love,
hope and grief. The record has all of that.”
