Following the Wooderson album out of the gates will be the debut album from Wakefield's The Brown Hound James Band.
If the name sounds familiar it may be because Brown Hound James is the on/off alter ego of Matthew Broadbent (Dugong/Nathaniel Green/The sWord/Messina), albeit one that's been a little quiet in recent times.
Now, however, Brown Hound James is back and with the help of Daisonic knob-twiddler Ray Tovey and various Leeds and Wakefield punk-scene alumni (members of The Dauntless Elite, Dugong, Milloy, Protectors and Pylon have lent their talents to either the album or the live band over the last year or so), The Brown Hound James Band have recorded a bit of a masterpiece.
Titled At The Home Of The Heartlands, the album will be out later this summer. As a taster we're offering up a free downloadable double-a-side single, Mary Got Married/Lonely Son which can be found now on the Bombed Out Bandcamp page. As an extra bonus Matt has taken an old Dugong song and reworked it into the kind of thing you'd expect from someone like The National.
So, a typical Bombed Out release? No. But don't let that put you off. Those of you with an open ear and perhaps a few Wilco, Son Volt or even The Weakerthans records in their collection will find something to enjoy here.
Expect more news on the album soon.
