Rough Trade is very pleased to present the debut full length release from Houndmouth, From The Hills Below The City. The 12 original songs on ƒ??From The Hills Below the Cityƒ?? are packed with tales of down-on-their-luck drugrunners, casinos, riverboats, recession-era scraping, and more. All members of Houndmouth sing, ƒ??leading with individual character and harmonizing in saloon-choir empathy,ƒ?? writes Rolling Stoneƒ??s David Fricke, and their songs have a loose-limbed swing, anchored by a sturdy rhythm and a cagey melodic sensibility. Houndmouth is comprised of four musicians from New Albany, IN, across the river from Louisville, KY -hence ƒ??From The Hills Below the City.ƒ?? Once a folk duo, Katie Toupin and Matt Myers (The Saint James Hotel) joined up with Shane Cody (Riffraff Revival) and Zak Appleby and spent the past year building a passionate following in their hometown and touring with the Alabama Shakes, Lumineers, Grace Potter, and Drive-By Truckers.
