Houndmouth is a collaborative folk/rock band from the lowland plains and farmlands of Indiana and Kentucky. Their poetry emphasizes foolhardiness, and their soulful harmonies carry far. Once a folk duo, Katie Toupin and Matt Myers (The Saint James Hotel) joined up with Shane Cody (Riffraff Revival) and Zak Appleby to create a colossal electric sound with bouncy half-time beats, punchy guitar riffs, and a bit of facial hair.
Andrew Combs is a Texas songwriter, guitarist, and singer who lives in Nashville. His brand of country-folk looks back to Guy Clark and Mickey Newbury's heyday in Nashville. Following the success of the self-released 2010 EP, Tennessee Time, Coin Records released the 7-inch "Big Bad Love" in April 2012. While the EP displayed a decidedly Nashville sound, "Big Bad Love" and b-side "Take It From Me" reveal a ballsier side—a folk-rock sound with nods to rough-and-tumble Chicago blues and Planet Waves-era Dylan. Combs' live show was once described as a cross between the stripped-down country-rock of Merle Haggard and the tightly wound garage-punk of Detroit's MC5. They call it country soul swag, and you should too.
