Holemole (Underground Communique Records)

This Oakland band's debut full-length makes a big, loud statement: grunge can still be relevant and even vital as an art form. Diffusing the frustration of hardcore through an accessible hard-rock filter, Olehole (pronounced o-lay ho-lay) expertly employs songcraft, lyricism, raw energy, and loads of distortion.

SHOW NOTE: Olehole's CD Release Party takes place Friday, Oct. 3 at Annie's Social Club in San Francisco.
