Houndmouth From The Hills Below The City on LP + MP3 Coupon
Houndmouth is comprised of four musicians from New Albany, IN, across the river from Louisville - hence From the Hills Below the City. Matt Myers (guitar/vocals), Katie Toupin (keyboard/vocals), Zak Appleby (bass/vocals) and Shane Cody (drums/vocals) spent the past year building a passionate following in their hometown and touring with the Alabama Shakes, the Lumineers, Grace Potter, and the Drive-By Truckers.
“Houndmouth is a great young band,” testifies Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers. “They ‘brought it’ each and every night. They were extremely popular with our fanbase and our band. I look forward to hearing what they do next.”
The 12 original songs on From The Hills Below the City are packed with tales of down-on-their-luck drug runners, casinos, riverboats, recession-era scraping, and more. All members of Houndmouth sing, “leading with individual character and harmonizing in saloon-choir empathy,” writes Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, and their songs have a loose-limbed swing, anchored by a sturdy rhythm and a cagey melodic sensibility. Vinyl includes MP3 coupon.
