Howler America Give Up on LP
Originally issued on Rough Trade Records in 2012, America Give Up is the catchy, youthfully brash debut from Minneapolis indie-rock act Howler, the brainchild of frontman Jordan Gatesmith who previously played guitar in the Minneapolis band, Total Babe. The overwhelming desire to create his own songs, in his own band, prompted him to hole up with his laptop and a guitar and within weeks he had written the tracks that became the genesis for the band's debut EP This One's Different. Almost as quickly he found the musicians to play them with. Joining Jordan for Howler's auspicious debut are Ian Nygaard (guitar), France Camp (bass), Max Petrek (keyboards) and Brent Mayes (drums). Home to the singles "Told You Once" and "Back Of Your Neck."
