IN THE PINES
TASTY + WAVY QUEEN CITY PSYCH ROCK
With an intense cocktail of psychedelic guitar rock and R&B sensibility, In the Pines has been serving energetic grooves throughout Cincinnati and the greater midwest area since the band's inception in 2015.
The band's unique style of dynamic rock is influenced by acts like Spoon, Dr. Dog, and Tame Impala, but continues to evolve and incorporate other genres. The inclusion of saxophone on songs like «Driftin» is an indication of the band's concurrent love for jazz, fusion, and contemporary hip hop.
CURIO KEY CLUB
Equally inspired by rock, fusion, funk and pop, CURIO KEY CLUB, has garnered praise as a band capable of shape shifting through genres. A little bit boss, a little Clarence Clemons, the band has loose tendencies, technical proficiency and a rock and roll swagger.
Frontman, saxophonist and singer Drew Miller spent much of 2015 playing, touring and recording with Bonnie Prince Billy and has been playing, recording and touring with Houndmouth since 2016, along with CKC tenor saxophonist Graeme Gardiner. In addition to Houndmouth and BPB, the bands’ musical family tree has deep roots and a broad canopy, with members currently playing in Small Time Napoleon, Bridge 19, Roadie, Appalatin, Swing 39 and Billy Goat Strut and KGB.
Their newest ep, ZEN AMERICA (march 2018) highlights a continued musical evolution of “experimental indie pop” ,as described by Jake Hellman of never- nervous.com
, and showcases the band’s energy and musical sensitivity.�ZEN AMERICA was recorded, mixed and produced by Houndmouth’s Shane Cody @shanebows at his Greenhouse studio in New Albany In.
