SHOUT OUT LOUDS have been doing solid WORK

♫ Shout Out Louds – Walls

Hells yeah. Shout Out Louds debut, Our Ill Wills, was one of my favorites of 2007 and now we are getting a follow-up in 2010. After hearing that Phil Ek was producing (the guy who turned the Dodos latest album into a bore), that there wouldn’t be any more strings or bells, and being initially disappointed with “Walls”, I was pretty skeptical about the whole affair. Then I listened. And listened. And watched. And listened. And now I am pretty damn into it. “Walls” is definitely a step in a different direction for the band, but at the same time it’s still a huge anthemic fist pumper that has their stamp all over it. February 23rd is when we get to hear Work and I emphasize hear because I think they could have stepped up their game with the album art. Our Ill Wills was so on point and now this makes them look like a bunch of sad-sacks instead of one of the most sincerely fun bands around.

    You sir, are definitely right. Shoddy work on my part. :( I apologize. I guess I had better get my game tight and go track down their actual debut, 2003's Howl Howl Gaff Gaff.

    Howl Howl Gaff Gaff is still their best, I think. Enjoy tracking it down! It's fantastic.

    “Walls” gives me great hope for this album!

    ANOTHER top track – looking forward to their new stuff in 2010 and will also revisit their old stuff. I used the love 'The Comeback'

    Heck yeah, I am just getting into Howl/Gaff now but am a solid Ill Wills fan. Big hopes for their new one although I am a bit sad to hear that all the strings and bells will be gone :(
