Track premiere: Young Valley “Howlin'”

‘Howlin” is the frenetic new song by Mississippi-based Americana band Young Valley taken from their new sophomore self-titled studio album, out April 20th on all formats via  Matt Patton’s (Drive-By Truckers / The Dexateens) new label imprint Dial Back Sound. You can pre-order it here. Singer-songwriter Zach Lovett told AUK: “People inherently seem to think you have this never-ending wealth of knowledge on the blues if you’re from Mississippi. For me, my youth was spent blaring Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, and Steve Earle. ‘Howlin” is a hodgepodge homage to all of the things that shaped me. Where I’m from, what I grew up on, and, of course, a little fire and brimstone.” Which sounds better than gruel and Rick Astley, thank you the North of England.
