JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound have long been blowing us away with their self-described “post-punk soul.” Between their two infectious studio albums and their unforgettable performances, their forthcoming album Howl was bound to attract some attention.
The band’s third full-length, Howl shows the band’s maturation while staying true to the introspective lyrics and big sound for which they’re known. The album was produced by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Wolf Parade) and recorded in December 2012.
Howl is set for release on May 21 via Bloodshot Records, but you can listen to the album in its entirety in the player below. Pre-order your copy of Howl here.
