Back in 2001, Rough Trade exercised a considerable coup by signing up the band who almost single-handedly transformed modern guitar indie rock as we know it. Of course, it turned out that The Strokes only had one and a half albums of good material in them, but their legacy is still felt today. Fast forward ten years and Rough Trade are still pinning their hopes on young, good-looking American indie types, this time in the form of Minneapolis’ Howler.
Their debut EP came out not long ago to considerable hype and buzz and now the band have announced the release of their debut album, America Give Up, out on 16th January 2012. To celebrate, they have released a new song from the album, ‘Back Of Your Neck’ which you can listen to and download for free from the widget below. Enjoy!
