Holy White Hounds Interview

The Des Moines band, Holy White Hounds, have a new EP out. It’s called, “Oh Mama” and it sounds amazing!

They’ve gotten a whole ton of press lately. So here’s some more!

We caught up with frontman Brenton Dean of HWH for a quick interview…

Locusic: For those unfamiliar with your music, how would you describe it?

HWH: We don’t describe it really. You could call it rock but I don’t like doing that too much. The word rock covers everything from Katy Perry to Bob Dylan depending on who you ask. I believe it was the great John Frusciante who said, “I feel that when you speak about things your diarrhea’ing all over them. You just ruin whatever your talking about.” That kinda sums up my fear of describing our music.

Locusic: From what I’ve heard of the new album, it sounds really well produced. Where did you have it done and what was the recording process like?

HWH: We recorded the EP at Sonic Factory here in town. Branden Darner produced it and Micah Natera engineered. So yes, very well produced. Those guys do great work. We spent some time mixing out at ARC studio in Omaha as well. That was a great time. The recording process was pretty laid back. We put in a couple long days and then took our time putting the touches on it here and there over the next couple weeks. We ate and drank a lot throughout the recording. So I guess we kept it pretty loose.

Locusic: What do you guys do when you’re not working on your music?

HWH: That’s a tricky question because I’m never without music. It sounds fuckin’ corny, but truly, I am so rarely without a song developing in my mind. If that wasn’t the case I don’t think I would play music at all. What would be the point in putting myself out there like that if I didn’t feel innately driven to do it? It’s hard work, being in a band. Luckily I got someone like Ambrose [Lupercal], who is a super disciplined guy. If we are not working on our music we are probably talking about working on our music… working on not pushing up daisies.

Locusic: Where can people get a copy of the new album?

HWH: Best way to get a copy is certainly to come to a show and buy one! Although, for the lame ducks out there, it will be up on iTunes very soon.

 

Speaking of shows, you can go see Holy White Hounds at Octopus College Hill in Cedar Falls on 11/15 or at the Gas Lamp in Des Moines on 12/28.

Also, be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter and listen for them on Locusic (in Des Moines under Rock). And checkout their latest video for Switchblade off the new EP.

How To Meet Other Musicians

Photo courtesy of www.picturephilly.com

Ready to get out of the basement? Have you perfected your signature guitar moves in front of the mirror? It’s time to meet up with some like-minded musicians and start something! Once you have the itch to start up a band of brothers or sisters, it must be scratched. It seems so simple, just go find other musicians, but people don’t religiously flock to venues to swap ideas as much as they used to. You know, that whole internet thing eliminated some of that. Here are ways you can find other musicians and start living the ‘How We Met’ portion of your future ‘Behind The Music’ special.

 

1.       Shows

Is there a local band you really like? Go see them. Talk to them afterwards. Chances are they would love to talk about music, aspirations, people they know looking for a band, etc. The easy access of the internet has made people less likely to be bold and be the first to approach someone, but BE BOLD.

How did Keith Moon become the drummer of The Who? He talked to them after a show and told them he was better than their drummer. Courtney Love talked her way into Faith No More after a show while wearing a wedding dress. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Chances are, there are musicians at the show doing the exact same thing you are…so find them, too!

 

2.       BandMix.com

Band Mix is basically a Match.com for musicians to check out each other’s profiles and find matches for their band or music project. No love connections here, just individual musicians seeking band mates. Band Mix allows you to search by location, genre, instruments played, and even vocal range. Your profile allows you to upload audio, photos, and specify what kinds of musicians you’re seeking.

 

3.       Music Stores (Equipment, Records, Head Shops…)

Flyers, conversation, and recommendations! Oh my! Generally, people who work at music stores are musicians, or aficionados of the local music scene. Ask questions. They’re at work and they’re bored. (See: High Fidelity)

They would love to talk with you about the latest gear, latest band, or latest band that broke up. (Stray musicians! Go find them!)

 

Already in a band? How did you find your band family? We want to know!
