Handsome Hound – Austin (Tiny Desk Contest)

Folk ensemble Handsome Hound decided to film their 2018 entry to NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest in front of a live audience. Ace portrait photog and Bathtub Republic resident Mark Williams Hoelscher shot the band’s entire show recently at Union Stage, and much of it has found its way to YouTube. “Austin”, the advance single from Handsome Hound’s debut full length album Mountain On Fire, also serves as the contest entry, hoping to woo Bob Boilen and judges with its unabashed love of America’s live music capital. The new album drops Friday May 18th with a show at the Black Cat featuring Dupont Brass and Lauren Calve.

Handsome Hound – Carina (Tiny Desk Contest)

Our spin through the DC area submissions to NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest continues with the utterly lovable folk rock band Handsome Hound. Claire Daviss and Cuchulain Kelly front this unique and accessible quintet of musicians, here performing an unreleased song “Carina” at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop Gallery.

While you’re at it, relive Snowzilla 2016 and watch Daviss and Kelly and trumpeter Allison Rosenberg perform “Hannah”, from their debut EP I Guess We’re Doing Alright, for last year’s contest, which we completely missed presenting to you until now.

Handsome Hound – Hannah

Upbeat jazzy folk band Handsome Hound have a well-timed message for all the heavy feels we have right now. “Hannah”, the new single from their debut EP I Guess We’re Doing Alright, tells the story of a rebellious young lady challenging societal norms. Videographer Kip Radt, director of Near Northeast’s excellent video Under The Pines earlier this year, enlisted Amaris Montes as a lady boxer with a mean frown and a punishing right hook. The DC indie folk scene is coalescing into a popular and necessary counterpoint to punk, and we’ve never needed it more.
