Houndmouth

11 Apr 2013: Rockwood Music Hall — New York

John in the Morning, the morning host and show on Seattle’s KEXP is a great resource for new music. Sometime back in August, I caught wind of a band called Houndmouth and their song “Penitentiary” via the station. There may have been something that reminded me of another upcoming band, the Lumineers, in their sound, but whatever it was, I definitely put them on my ‘must see’ list. Unfortunately, it took another eight months before I could do that, but I was well rewarded for my patience. The young band, Matt Myers, Katie Toupin, Zak Appleby and Shane Cody, hail from Indiana and and are eager to share their bluesy music through their constant touring.

In a couple short months the band will see the release of their first full length From the Hills Below the City released on Rough Trade and will accompany the Alabama Shakes on the road for a few dates. In the meantime, you can familiarize yourself with their four-track EP and get all the info about their tour and the new album at their site.
