Howth – Needles and Pins

Howth are a New York-based duo made up of Carl Creighton and Blake Luley. Their tightly arranged self-titled sophomore album was just released, recorded in a makeshift basement studio in a building which has since burned down. The songs are dark and dusty and convey a sense of intimacy that doesn’t happen with most studio albums. You can almost picture the two of them down in that basement, strumming away loosely in the dark. The full album is available for purchase and streaming at their bandcamp page. Great track!
