Hollow Doubt – Creepoid

For my first post of 2011, I feel obligated to post the song that has defined my year so far. That song would undoubtably be Creepoid’s “Hollow Doubt.” Creepoid is a group from Philadelphia, which seems very fitting because they have a similar atmospheric to one of the city’s current musical icons, Kurt Vile. Like Vile, the guitarist of Creepoid has a very large southern rock tone drowned in reverb. Unlike Vile, Creepoid’s sound is stately, and there isn’t a sense of emptiness. “Hollow Doubt” perfectly exemplifies the sort of overwhelming flood that is Creepoid’s sound. The term ¬†Shoegaze seems to have become ambiguous and undefined to the point where it can be a description of any slightly atmospheric song. Despite this, it’s hard not to shamelessly say it anyways.
