Hailing from New Albany, Indiana, Houndmouth are a new four-piece who are releasing their debut self-titled EP via Rough Trade on 28th August.
The track we have for you is called Penitentiary and is about as good a slab of rolling, easy paced Americana as we’ve heard in a good long while, with a chorus that recalls classic era Band and boy/girl harmonies that are a delight. Lyrically it is spot on too, the opening lines setting the scene perfectly.
I hid a batch in ‘Frisco, I couldn’t score a job
so I did the next best thing and I learned how to rob
We’re looking forward to the EP immensely, Houndmouth are perfectly filling the void while we wait for the next Roadside Graves release…
