Listen/Post: Welcome to the Land of Bad Magic
When a thunderclap met a tornado, Hound was born in the Philly dark, bred off primal energy, and unleashed without warning. If 2015’s Out of Space orbited around murky prog textures and metal snarls, its forthcoming follow-up Born Under 76 gets soaked in the swamp between punk and hard rock. Whether that winning concoction is the sum of Hound’s ragtag parts – featuring Chris Wilson (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists) on drums, Perry Shall on guitar/vocals, and Pat Hickey on bass – or the LP’s dances with the devil, it’s obvious something burbles under the streets of Philadelphia. It’s sinister yet familiar, and bites with its own maniacal energy. But don’t worry – it’s delivered with a smile. Hound is back, and they’re armed with a dozen reasons to answer their howl. Maybe they’ll bring one out of you, too.
Hound release show!
10/20 – Philadelphia, PA – Space 1026 (Album release show w/ “Financial Guru” Greg Gethard, Dialer, Mary Houlihan, Alicia Camden, Michael Sneeringer)
Praise for Hound:
“The Philadelphia trio Hound make burly, bongwater-splattered rock’n’roll, the kind designed to sound particularly great coming from a pinstriped AMC Gremlin. Their new album, Out of Time, is unrelenting.” – Pitchfork
“With a name like Hound, I expected something heavy and in my face, and that’s what I got. The vocals have a low, distorted, drunken charm to them. The tunes are really straight-forward, driving, hard rock jams-mostly riff-driven and shy of a lot of flashy leads. There are heavy rock’n’roll and early metal influences here, but more punk via the Ramones.” – Razorcake
“…the raunchiness of Black Sabbath but the melodic adroitness of early 90s Green Day.” – XPN
