Hounds: Hounds

Hounds is a three piece alternative/indie/psych/pop trio from St. Louis who were previously known as Clockwork but have changed their moniker and have recently released their self-titled debut. Comprised of Jordan Slone (vocals, guitar), Logan Slone (bass, vocals), and Logan Mohler (drums, vocals), on first spin Hounds seems like somewhat of an odd fit here at Sea of Tranquility...there's no metal, prog, hard rock, or jazz to be found on this debut, but, repeated listens reveal a band quite adept at writing catchy, indie pop fare with a smattering of '60s psychedelia that is actually pretty damn addicting. "Shake Me Up" almost dips into rockabilly with its jangly guitars and memorable hooks, while the irresistible pop melodies of "Anything At All", "Ghosts are Ghosts", and "American Scheme" are hard to ignore. The band lists The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and The Doors as influences, and you can also hear some Tom Petty, Electric Light Orchestra, and The Moody Blues in spots, so it's not unusual to find Hounds tackling a classic from the past, here in the form of the Jefferson Airplane staple "White Rabbit", which they do quite well and have a lot of fun with it. Musically speaking, the trio are very capable musicians, the rhythms rock solid and Jordan's vocals and guitar work crisp and engaging.

Given the right promotion and luck, I can totally see Hounds catching on in a big way with fans of pop and indie rock. Give this is a listen, as you might be hearing a lot more from this band in the not too distant future.
