Howler - America Give Up ALBUM PREVIEW


Minneapolis up and coming power-pop rock band Howler are set to release their debut album 'America Give Up' on January 17th on the Rough Trade label. The album is streaming over at NPR now if you would like to check it out a week early. Howler have already impressed the music critics with the release of their EP This One's Different and with a full length album the praise will surely only continue. America Give Up is on my list of albums I am looking forward to in the new year. The songs come at you fast and there is really no messing around with these guys, they are to the point and just create a solid collection of rock songs. You might say they are the new Strokes poster boys or maybe this years Vaccines but at the same time they have a little edge and rawness to their music which is a nice twist. NPR sum it up nicely... "Howler writes power-pop tunes that clock in at three minutes or less — the best kind. Howler's members are young, but there's maturity to the way they compose these hand-clappy, shimmery pop tunes with just enough disaffectedness in frontman Jordan Gatesmith's voice."
