howler, a new young band from minneapolis release their debut album 'america give up' on rough trade. howler are a bit of a vaccines-drums-strokes hybrid with hints of summer sun and la 60s pop alongside their down'n'dirty nyc rattle and strum. unequal parts spector and cbgbs, they call what they do surf-thrash, while elsewhere they've been described as 'sun-kissed garage rock'. as lanky but cute frontboy jordan gatesmith, who's a punky-indie justin bieber and used to be in a band called total babe, has been keen to remind everyone, howler are from minneapolis, home of the replacements and husker du, while also pointing towards the ronettes and shangri-las albums in his collection.
