Aphorismic Wasteland Blues

Album: World Of Joy (2014)
  • Howler close their World of Joy album with this unusual number. Vocalist Jordan Gatesmith told Words For Music: "It's one of the first songs we wrote for the record and it didn't originally work for some reason and we couldn't figure out why – so I just recorded electric guitar on a tape machine with loads of weird effects and it turned out really well."
