howler, a new young band from minneapolis release their debut 5 track limited 12" on rough trade. howler is reminiscent of the punk / hardcore scene of 1980s minneapolis, the band's hometown. its 'this one's different' ep plays like an experiment to balance the loud and dirty qualities of husker du and the replacements with the poppy hooks of the ronettes and shangri-las. songs like 'you like white women, i like cigarettes' and 'i told you once' charm you just as much as they rock. at its soul, howler sounds like what the skate punk contingent of the 1980s would if they cleaned up for a night to take their girlfriends to prom.
