Perry Shall is at it again with Hound, his new band which also includes bassist Joel Winter along with drummer Chris Wilson (also notable for playing in Ted Leo and the Pharmacists). This week the band released not just one, but two simultaneous debut albums, titled Out of Time and Out of Space, both pulled from recording sessions over the past year (which also included musicians Brendan Graham of Everyone Everywhere on drums and Mike Klein on bass). Hound’s material certainly pulls somewhat from from Dry Feet, Shall’s earlier band, but with less of a surf feel and more of a dark metal-punk Motorhead-ish sound to it. This is evident in songs like “Mortality Jam,” from the Out of Space album which features a barrage of E chords played with the tone of a guitar plugged into a wall of Marshall amplifiers, or “Cold Sweat” from Out of Time, which has the raunchiness of Black Sabbath but the melodic adroitness of early 90s Green Day. Check out the LPs below.
