Had I spent more time with the Shout Out Louds’ Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, I’m almost positive it would have vied for a spot in my favorite albums list.
Howl Howl really feels bipolar: at times desperate and longing, other times joyful and confident. The Comeback … oh, what a song. (Oh, crap! I forgot that on my favorite songs list. Damn!) Lead singer Adam (apparently, he has no last name, like one of those Brazilian soccer players) sings with a strained inflection and with this confused-in-love passion that’s earnest and not at all forced.
And the band is from Sweden; aren’t all of the latest and greatest from Sweden? Well, I recently picked up the Very Loud EP, which contains two songs that weren’t released on Howl Howl. If anyone asks (hint, hint) I may be inclined to rip and provide the band’s mini-performance on The Current.

Yes! Please post that rip. I love me some Shout Out Louds. They are so best.
I saw them in Chicago last month–they were very good. Towards the end, when the played Very Loud, the whole crowd was singing along, which was very moving. One of the better shows I’ve been to this year.
Pretty sure Adam’s last name is Olenius. The keyboard player is really hot. Saw them in Philly back in November. Some pics and a review here.
Love this album.
oh oh oh, it would be the best holiday present if you would post it!!
