FAUX REPLIKA- "Presenting!" LP
LA ARMADA- "Anti-Colonial Vol.1" LP (Clear)
HOWARDIAN- "Are You A Frienda Brenda" LP
Howardian is a punk rock art rock group fronted by Ian Vanek (ex-JAPANATHER) established in 1994. This is like their 7th LP!!! Howardian uses analog drum machines and my main man Mustafa, an array of synth melodies and family sized bass lines to cook an authentic soulful sound. Thoughtful lyrics are delivered in a unique manner while surfy drums pound under the warm wall of sound. It can at times be thick with technical poly rhythms. It may have sticky piano driven melodies and sly lyrics. Howardian's tracks feature fuzzy, distorted walls of sound and plenty of samples, all with a scuzzy garage-rock vibe. FFO: Japanther, Shellshag, Mind Spiders, The Brokedowns, Vacation etc. Rad Girlfriend Recs.
