If you’re a frequenter of one of the three Barcades here in the New York metro area, chances are the best multi-player game you’ll find there will be “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time” AKA the best video game ever made. Many premie-millennial’s, a phrase I just coined to describe the small generation pool that can remember waiting for their movie to come in at Blockbuster or what it was like to go through middle school without an iPhone, have a fond relationship with those pizza loving, crime fighting Testudines.
That nostalgia multiplied by an immediate creative impulse informs New York-based band Howth’s forthcoming Trashy Milky Nothing Town LP due for a June 2nd (my birthday) release. The concept album is about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but also touches on the many complexities we all deal with in our interpersonal relationships.
Bandleader Carl Creighton finished the record after the band he made it with broke up soon after mixing it and is now supporting with a whole new band. That new creative flow has already lead to new work on the next concept album, Heimlich.
Speak Into My Good Eye is proud to host the exclusive premiere of single “April I Will” which, I assume, directly references the news reporting, yellow jumpsuit wearing heroine of the Turtles’ many adventures.
The acoustic guitar led number has a genuine balladeer warmth and sonic space to add in atmospheric elements skewing somewhere between Young the Giant and Pearl Jam
Stream Howth’s “April I Will Below” and catch them at Shea Stadium on June 2nd for their record release w/ Oracle Room, Ben Seretan Group, Chimneys and Parlor Walls.
