Howlin’ Lord
“You Again”


We’re in a rush right now. We can’t think of any mildly amusing anecdotes to fill in the first half of this feature to gently lead you into an explanation as to why in particular we’re digging today’s featured track. We also haven’t eaten much today, nor have we drank the bazillion gallons of water that you’re supposed to in an average day. Don’t care, we gotta bust a move. Got shit to do. Howlin’ Lord are a band from Bristol, which we have visited once for a relative’s stag do last year. They write, record and perform bluegrass-sentric folk tunes that cruise effortlessly over a seamlessly-flowing vocal melody, coupled with some solid rhythm action. For context, just picture Johnny Cash and The Eagles in the front seat; Tom Williams and The Boat  and Frank Turner in the back seat. Having been garnished in UK industry interest in particular over the last few months following several releases, 2011 is set to be “the one” for this trio, with appearances at several UK festivals, including Glastonbury, confirmed, locked down, sorted, done and dusted. The big question is, following these appearances and stepping into the limelight – which seat will they take?
