Hundred Waters returned this year as a three-piece, with multi-instrumentalist Paul Giese leaving the group following the release of their excellent sophomore album The Moon Rang Like A Bell. Now it’s just Nicole Miglis, Trayer Tryon and Zach Tetreault holding down the fort, releasing their new album Communicating (via Skrillex’s OWSLA).

It’s both a step into new territory for the band but also still has all the familiar elements that make the band such a unique force of nature. They brought the tour in support of the album to Brooklyn on October 7 for a performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg (where I saw them in 2015), featuring opening performances from the Kelsey Lu (who honestly blew me away), Lafawndah.

Win Tickets To See Hundred Waters at Rough Trade (November 25)

By Will Oliver, November 17th 2014 — with 1 comment

Hundred Waters

If you haven’t caught the spectacle that is a live set from the super talented Hundred Waters, you’ve deprived yourself of one of the finest live talents in the game at the moment. The group blew my mind just a few months ago when they played a dazzling SXSW set. They’ve since released their fantastic new record The Moon Rang Like A Bell and are back in New York next week playing Rough Trade NYC, in between supporting Interpol at sold out Terminal 5 shows.

I got a pair of tickets to give away to one of you guys. All you gotta do is leave a comment below, and I’ll pick a winner at random. Good luck! Read the rest of this entry »

Hundred Waters

I don’t know about you guys, but as of late one of the only albums I’ve been listening to is Hundred Waters’ new LP The Moon Rang Like A Bell. There’s honestly nothing out quite like it right now.

The band are playing an intimate show at Glasslands on Saturday night. Tickets look to be on off-sale currently, so if you slept on it, you may have to find secondary markets.

Just this March I saw the band play in Austin during SXSW, and they were nothing short of amazing. If you can find a ticket, I encourage you to get down to Glasslands on Saturday night. Mas Ysa is also opening.

[music video]: Hundred Waters – Murmurs

By Will Oliver, June 25th 2014

Hundred Waters - Murmurs - Music Video

Hundred Waters released a powerful music video for “Murmurs”, a lovely offering from their newly released album Moon Rang Like a Bell.

The video, which was directed by Bangs features numerous construction works that came to a house that lead singer Nicole Miglis is in. It’s sharply directed, and certinly has a meaning to be taken away from it.

Hundred Waters – XTalk

By Will Oliver, April 25th 2014

Hundred Waters

Earlier in the year Hundred Waters released a new song called “Cavity.” It was to be a part of their eventual new album but no details were shared at the time. Now they’ve announced that the new album is titled The Moon Rang Like A Bell. It will be released on May 27 via OWSLA.

Along with the announcement came the release of a new song called “XTalk.” In typical fashion it’s a wondrous track featuring lovely vocals and washed out synths that straight up dazzle.

Based upon a performance I saw from them during SXSW and hearing both “Cavity” and “XTalk” I got a feeling The Moon Rang Like A Bell is going to be something special.

Enjoy “XTalk” below.

[SXSW]: Hundred Waters @ Red 7 (March 15, 2014)

By Will Oliver, March 22nd 2014


Hundred Waters delighted with an utterly captivating performance at BrooklynVegan’s day party on Saturday. Their set was highly articulate and well composed of their songs that are just plain beautiful. They take their time to build, but once they do..whew. It’s a joyful thing to watch the songs unfold live

They played both of their new tracks “Cavity” and “Down From The Rafters.” Both were stunning to say the least, as was the rest of the material that they played from their debut.

They got one of the better crowd reactions that I saw during the festival, and based on these new songs, I think Hundred Waters are in for a big breakout in 2014. They certainly deserve it.

Find some more photos from their set below.

Hundred Waters – Cavity

By Will Oliver, March 18th 2014 — with 2 comments

Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters will release their new album on on May 27 via OWSLA.

This comes a month after the release of their stunning song “Down From The Rafters”, which is not to be missed. They followed that up earlier this month with another devastating beauty of a song by the name of “Cavity.” It’s one of the many wonderful tracks I heard them play this weekend at SXSW. A post on that performance is coming soon.

You can check out the video for the song, which was directed by Michael Langan. It’s shared below.

[new]: Hundred Waters – Down From The Rafters

By Will Oliver, February 19th 2014

Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters are currently working on their new record. Nothing official has been shared regarding name or release date, but yesterday they shared a lovely new song called “Down From The Rafters” which we can only hope makes the eventual album.

It’s a marvel of a song, drenched in a world of haunted, mysterious beauty, that surrounds you and doesn’t let up. From the hypnotizing vocals of Nicole Milglis to the majestic string arrangement, it’s a stone cold stunner. A song that you should be living in immediately.

Get lost in “Down From The Rafters” below.

[music video]: Hundred Waters – Boreal

By Will Oliver, February 5th 2013

Hundred Waters

Have had trouble getting into Hundred Waters for a while. All my fellow bloggers and comrads at CMJ went nuts for them, but I just didn’t get them. Checked out the video/song for “Boreal” and I am enjoying the song. The video is bizzare beyond words, but the song takes electronic music to another world. Pretty cool stuff.

It’s from their self-titled debut, out now via OWSLA.

They will be touring with Alt-J this spring, so I’ll hopefully catch them live this time and give them a shot.
