Blast from the Past

Long before Matt and I stumbled upon the Coo & Howl concept, he was singing in the band Joy (with current Coo & Howlers Matt Dodge and Dan Madri). Joy caught the eye of Jonathan Bekemeier (director of music videos for the Pixies and Buffalo Tom) who generously offered to shoot/conceptualize a video or their song "Tiger's Paws". The band offered me the opportunity to edit the video, which I very graciously accepted. It's a great song, and quite frankly, it's a pretty damn good video. I thought it would be fun to share this, so let's reminisce! Watch the video by clicking HERE.

Holiday Update

Hello friends. The following gratitude is way overdue, but the trivialities/realities of the working life have prevented me from devoting much effort to the band and/or blog. Nonetheless, I would like to extend a heart-felt "thank you" to all who attended our live performance a few weeks ago. It was great to see so many familiar, and even unfamiliar faces in the crowd. The band had a great time and have already begun musing over the possibilities of another show in February or March. Look for a video clip of the show to be posted soon.

And it seems more kind words are being shared about our record: NEW REVIEW

For those of you interested in some new material, we have already put down guitar tracks for an upcoming, acoustic, top-secret EP. And if that weren't enough, as soon as Matt Dodge returns from fixing bridges in the Bahamas, we will begin basic tracks for our first full-length record! Indeed.

Guten Tag! & Self-Promotion

As we prepare for our first live performance (tomorrow!), I thought it would be fun to direct you to our first international review. Common Folk Meadow is a German blog discussing "fine acoustic folk & some alt. country & some dream pop" and they have reviewed our EP Water Came and Cooled Us All. Want to read it? Click HERE.

Did you know we have a MySpace page?! Yup. There are even some "bonus" tracks which do not appear on any of our (one) recordings that you can listen to/enjoy. Link: Coo & Howl MySpace

We hope to see some of you tomorrow at our show (PAs Lounge, 345 Somerville Ave., Somerville, MA. Show starts around 9, Coo & Howl hits the stage around 10:30 or so). We've "electrified" our set, so get ready for some grit. And scotch.
