Houndmouth EP

The "Houndmouth EP", which came out this past August, is the first taste we've gotten of this Louisville, Kentucky band. It's only four songs, but there is a ton of potential there. There are two lead singers, one male and one female, which makes for some awesome harmonies, over a sound that is reminiscent of The Band. I guess it's a pretty big deal for a band to be drawing that type of comparison so early in their careers, but it's definitely a valid one. Give it a listen above, and click the link for purchase information. You'll find that outside the UK, you'll have to buy a digital copy, because vinyls and CD's only ship inside the UK. Which sucks. And is a pretty poor reflection on us, as American music fans. Regardless, we've got some good sounds coming out of Louisville. Listen after the break.


  1. "Penitentiary" (which sounds a lot like Dylan's "Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)") can be freely downloaded, courtesy to the Music Alliance Pact (a bunch of musical blogs that publish a common playlist of hot new songs every 15 of the month). If interested, go and grab it here: here.

    1. Nice catch, I definitely can hear the Quinn the Eskimo sound in this song. And we have actually featured the Music alliance pact once before:
