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.’
