Rough Trade



Today is officially ‘Houndmouth Day’ in Louisville, as decreed by Mayor Greg Fischer himself. The US four-piece play the Iroquois Amphitheater tonight to open the venue’s 2013 season.

Help celebrate the day by watching Houndmouth’s official music video for their stomping single ‘On The Road’. The track is taken from the US four-piece’s debut album ‘From The Hills Below The City’, out 3rd June on Rough Trade.

Houndmouth Tour Indiana Hometown In New La Blogotheque Session 07/10/13 in Houndmouth

Last month, a La Blogotheque video crew travelled to Houndmouth’s hometown of New Albany, IN to capture what things look like – to paraphrase their album title – ‘From the Hills Below the City.’ While roaming the area, the Rough Trade quartet performed acoustic and electric songs for their ‘Take Away Show’ – out in the woods, on the banks of the Ohio River, and even sitting around the ‘Green House’ where they recorded that debut album.

The videos show a year’s worth of on-the-road performance polish brought back home to the tiny town where it all began. In addition to the two original songs, the band revealed two new covers they’ve honed on tour: Funkadelic’s ‘Can You Get To That’ Johnny Cash’s ‘Long Black Veil.’
