About Hillstomp

High-energy junkyard blues


Drawing heavily from North Mississippi trance blues, a bit from Appalachia and taking their unstoppable energy from rockabilly, this Portland duo balances a makeshift drumkit of buckets, cans and BBQ lids with some rambunctious slide guitar. Think old timey blues filtered through hops and the Ramones!

Whether arranging traditionals, classics, or deceptively stark original songs, Hillstomp has duct-taped together a distinctive sound that has quickly made them favorites up and down the West coast. Their third and latest release, After Two But Before Five, is a live album, showcasing the electricity of a Hillstomp peformance while introducing new songs in their growing reportoire of "Bucket ‘n Slide Rock ‘n Roll."

"Even for blues nuts, Hillstomp doesn't sound like anything that's come before it. While Johnson bangs out clanking beats on his modified kit.... Kammerer slips and slides around his guitar like a kid on a waterslide. Melodies zip and splash about. Mammoth grooves seemingly appear out of nowhere. It's all primitive and natural, like it sprung up from the ground." - Jeff Inman, Las Vegas City Life
