Houndmouth

    Houndmouth On World Cafe The roots-rock band from New Albany, Ind., made a big splash earlier this year with "Penitentiary." Hear four more songs from the group's debut album during this World Cafe session.
Strong Songs And Harmonies At The Heart Of Houndmouth’s Debut

September 3, 2013 - Houndmouth are a rootsy 4 piece rock band from New Albany, Indiana right across the river from Louisville, Kentucky.

In these days of loops, samples and all things digital a four–piece rock band with guitars, B-3 and all members singing is “folk music!” If you are like me you may find yourself initially thinking: “We’ve heard this kind of “Band-like” music before.” But reserve judgment. Because these guys and girls will seduce you with impeccable chops, harmonies and ultimately with their songs. They were signed by Rough Trade records which led to their debut From The Hills Below The City. They nailed their session with us as you will hear.
