Houndmouth w/ Twin Limb
Blue Moose Tap House — Monday, Feb 23 at 9 p.m.
Indiana-based group Houndmouth will perform their brand of sweet, alt-country music tonight at the Blue Moose Tap House. The band has been named one of Spotify’s 2015 “Spotlight” acts to watch out for, and they’re on track to soon release their second full-length studio album, Little Neon Limelight. The group looks to have a promising year ahead of them.
Two years on the road together has given the four band members a chance to mature and fine-tune their sound. Little Neon Limelight gets more personal while maintaining their stunning, four-part harmonies. The opening track “Sedona” is an ode to the Arizona town that was once billed as “Little Hollywood” for the numerous films shot there. The song immediately strays away from the middle-America sound of their first album with its upbeat sound.
The band’s ballad-esque song “For Now One,” drops Houndmouth’s usual harmonies to draw the listener in. It features ghostly reverb effects and evocative lyrics suggesting a man adrift, metaphorically and physically, at sea. The two very different tunes display the versatility Houndmouth has developed as band.
Opening for Houndmouth is the Kentucky-based band, Twin Limb, which combine the ethereal stylings of accordion and dreamy, female vocals. Although they have yet to release their first album, the trio recently put out a new single entitled “Long Shadow.”
