Hailing from New Albany, Indiana, a town neighboring Louisville, young band Houndmouth make their debut on the meticulously produced From the Hills Below the City. The album's 12 songs find Houndmouth, composed of just four musicians, putting out a passionate and explosively large sound, revisiting bygone themes through both the down-home holler of heartland Americana and some well-schooled rock musicianship. One of the first things that sticks out about the group is the urgent singing of all four members, often backing each other up as one member takes the lead.
Houndmouth have brought back the old-fashioned virtues of musicianship: (really) well-played instruments, carefully arranged vocals, collective uniformity and the power to move. More purposefully retro than its breakout success followup, "From the Hills Below The City" is a thoroughly solid and back-to-back satisfying collection of rollicking Americana/folk-rock tunes perfectly suited to road trips. The first four tracks in particular serve as something of a thesis statement for the band, emphasizing in equal parts the wild and charismatic vocals of frontman Matt Myers; the country drawl of Katie Taupin; and some intoxicating group harmony choruses.
Houndmouth is comprised of four musicians from New Albany, IN, across the river from Louisville - spent the past year building a passionate following in their hometown and touring with the Alabama Shakes, the Lumineers, Grace Potter, and the Drive-By Truckers. Rather, on this debut full-length album, Houndmouth have already begun to stake out their own sonic turf. The songwriting is very strong, the three and four part harmonies along with the switching of lead vocalists are both on target and quite welcome, and the lead guitar breaks are often smokin'.
