Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons

Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons

Armed​ ​with​ ​electric​ ​guitars,​ ​swooning​ ​vocals,​ ​and​ ​songs​ ​that​ ​split​ ​the​ ​difference​ ​between​ ​rock​ ​& roll​ ​and​ ​dreamy​ ​psychedelia,​ ​Angela​ ​Perley​ ​&​ ​the​ ​Howlin’​ ​Moons​ ​pack​ ​the​ ​biggest​ ​punch​ ​of​ ​their care​er​ ​with​ ​​​Homemade ​ Vision. Like​​ ​the​ ​band’s​ ​debut,​ ​​​Hey ​ ​ Kid ​ ​​ —​ ​an​ ​album​ ​whose​ ​kickoff​ ​track,​ ​“Athens,”​ ​earned​ ​Perley​ ​an International​ ​Songwriting​ ​Award​ ​in​​ ​2014​ ​—​​ ​​Homemade Vision ​ ​​ was​ ​recorded​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Howlin’ Moons’​ ​hometown​ ​of​ ​Columbus,​ ​Ohio.​ ​Many​ ​of​ ​the​ ​songs​ ​were​ ​dreamt​ ​up​ ​somewhere​ ​along​ ​the highways​ ​and​ ​backroads​ ​that​ ​crisscross​ ​America,​ ​though,​ ​coaxed​ ​into​ ​life​ ​by​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of roots-rock​ ​road​ ​warriors​ ​who​ ​regularly​ ​play​ ​more​ ​than​ ​100​ ​shows​ ​a​ ​year.​ ​As​ ​a​ ​result, Homemade ​ ​ Vision ​ ​​ is​ ​the​ ​sort​ ​of​ ​wide-ranging​ ​record​ ​that​ ​creates​ ​its​ ​own​ ​geography,​ ​building​ ​an imaginary​ ​place​ ​where​ ​the​ ​influences​ ​of​ ​David​ ​Gilmour,​ ​Tom​ ​Petty,​ ​Led​ ​Zeppelin,​ ​and​ ​Nebula all​ ​intersect. It’s​ ​also​ ​the​ ​work​ ​of​ ​a​ ​genuine​ ​​band. Chris​ ​Connor’s​ ​guitar​ ​playing​ ​—​ ​a​ ​flurry​ ​of​ ​fuzz,​ ​crunch, twang​ ​and​ ​bang​ ​—​ ​occupies​ ​just​ ​as​ ​large​ ​a​ ​role​ ​as​ ​Perley’s​ ​voice,​ ​while​ ​Billy​ ​Zehnal’s​ ​bass​ ​— coupled​ ​with​ ​cymbal​ ​crashes​ ​and​ ​snare​ ​hits​ ​from​ ​an​ ​arsenal​ ​of​ ​heavy-hitting​ ​drummers​ ​—​ ​glues the​ ​mix​ ​together.​ ​Inspired​ ​by​ ​love,​ ​heartbreak,​​ ​and​ ​everything​ ​in​ ​between,​ ​​Homemade ​Vision​ is a​ ​battle​ ​cry​ ​from​ ​a​ ​band​ ​that’s​ ​spent​ ​years​ ​fighting​ ​the​ ​good​ ​fight,​ ​carving​ ​out​ ​their​ ​own​ ​brand​ ​of atmospheric,​ ​aggressive​ ​Americana​ ​along​ ​the​ ​way.
