Houndmouth Do It All Again, Maybe Even Better on Little Neon Limelight

We love the rootsy Louisville-based band Houndmouth. The four piece that formed in 2011 have just released their second album called Little Neon Limelight. Like their 2013 debut From The Hills Below The City it contains some very smart lyric writing and big sing-along choruses that prove hard to resist. The group's interplay reminds us at times of the perfectly ramshackle sound of The Band itself. We will hear a live set from the stage of World Cafe Live in front of an adoring crowd.
