Howling Owl Records presents 'Music Is Dead' for Record Store day 2013.
12" vinyl. 100 copies only.
Following last years RSD special (www.howlingowlrecords.bigcartel.com/product…irhorns) we have decided that it would only be polite to offer up another special vinyl for this glorious event.
This year sees us release Music Is Dead Vol.1, with four bands completely contradicting that statement. Side A features the first anyone has heard from The Naturals in over a year; Its Teeth is a monster of a return and shows just why we think that they are genuinely the most exciting band on the planet right now. Spectres follow with another brand new song; a demo recorded shortly after the sessions that spawned 'Hunger', the critically acclaimed sell out EP (drownedinsound.com/releases/17520/reviews/4146139). Where Youth? shows that as well as loud, they can tone it down and write something verging on radio friendly..but not for long.
Oliver Wilde stokes the excitement for his upcoming album release (July) with Home, a song that further cements his growing status as a master songwriter who cleverly shrouds his widescreen appeal in lo-fi sparkle. Velcro Hooks finish things off with the original,unheard version of Yesterday's Man; a much rawer cut than the one found on their sell out EP Gymnophoria.
Housed, as always, in lovingly hand assembled packaging and bespoke artwork; this is another release that emphasises just how strong the Howling Owl family is becoming.
Music Is Dead. Long Live Music.
