Musically speaking, the band looks forward and backward at the same time, invoking hazy psychedelics in an indie rock sort of a way. The music has a medium timbre to it, not being too heavy but completely rocking out at the same time.
The Hold Steady is touring in support of the newly released Boys and Girls in America, out on Vagrant Records. It was recorded at Water Music in Hoboken and mixed at the Magic Shop in New York.
