Unmasked: Quiet Hounds Reveal Themselves


Quiet Hounds will unmask themselves this month in Atlanta!

So for those of you that have been following the progression of Atlanta’s mysterious rock band, Quiet Hounds, big things are coming….

The Hounds will be revealing themselves in an unveiling/live show in Atlanta on Saturday, February 25th at the just-as mysteriously named The Goat Farm Arts Center.  Super excited!  I’m dying to find out who the guys are (okay, I might have gotten a hint or two, but they’re still a mystery to me!).

To get everyone excited, the guys are giving away a really cool prize…a chance to get into Quiet Hounds events FREE for life.  All you’ve got to do is visit their Facebook page and pick a mask from their photos and use it in your profile photo for the month of February (I’m partial to the Loud Hound and Poetic Hound, but you can pick from Drum Hound, Bass Hound, and Evil Hound, too).

Don’t forget, you can still pick up the Hounds debut EP (which was my numero uno EP last year, in case you missed it) for free on their website.  Don’t know how long that is going to last, so get it now while you can.  And, from the pictures that have been floating around on the band’s Instagram, it seems like there might be a limited edition hard copy of the EP in existence soon…

*insert squeal* NEW COUNTING CROWS!


It’s like my wildest dream coming true, really.  First Bruce announces a new album and tour, and now Counting Crows?  Within a month of each other?  Someone pass the smelling salts, I may faint from the excitement.

The new album, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation) will be released on April 10th.  You can pick up the first single, “Mercy,” from the Counting Crows website right now in exchange for your e-mail address.  According to the band’s blog, it’s 15 songs by other artists redone by Counting Crows.  Artists include Travis, Dawes, Bob Dylan, Pure Prairie League (“Amie” – a song that CC recorded a few years ago) and Big Star (“The Ballad of El Goodo,” which has floated around on several CC bootlegs for years).

“Mercy,” originally by CC band member Dan Vickrey’s other music project Tender Mercies, is a barroom confessional, resplendent with crying guitar riffs and Adam’s whiskey-drenched vocal, begging mercy to follow him.  I love, love, love it.  If it’s a sign of what’s to come on the album, I am going to be a very, very, very happy girl come April!
