  • The Holy Coast has come to mean to me the band that saves me from late summertime blues. Last year they released their brilliant debut Tape Collective One and it was a wonderful late summer collection of songs to save your life. It turns out that this year is no different, they have released their second, self-title EP and it only steps up their game. In all honesty, if I had to choose one male vocal to “mancrush” on in the entire scene it would have to be that of Brett Davis’. Rising out of the ashes of Sister Cities,...
