Check out Houston’s “DntUWry” from Their First Album in 20 Years (Release Show Tonight!)
After the excellent many-years-in-the-making EP earlier this year Every Branch On The Way Down, Houston decided to keep rolling with their reunion and are already back with a brand new full-length out next week on Init Records. The Biggest Shove In Space is the band’s first album in 20 years (following 2003’s Bottom Of The Curve) and really picks off right where things left off. Very much disciples of the spaced-out verses/crunchy choruses of the alt-rock greats of the 90s (Hum and Failure obviously come to mind), Houston knows very much how to write a great riff and big chorus. “DntUWry” has some more current-day vibes of Queens of The Stone Age in its melodies and guitar sounds before paying off into that big halftime chorus.
To commemorate the release (which comes out next Friday), they’re doing a pair of shows in Minneapolis and Duluth with another name you may recognize from their original era: The Dames. More info and tickets for tonight’s show are right here.
