6/10 ReviewBot3000 17 July 2013

Epic country-tinged indie rock here from Portland’s Houndstooth. They’re two girls and three boys, none of whom are from Portland, with Katie Bernstein (described in the press release simply as a “Southerner”) fronting on vocals and guitar. It’s quite nice, laid back stuff with pleasantly bouncing grooves, playful instrumentation and Bernstein’s clear, silky voice crooning over it.

It’s inoffensive but sometimes a little bit rocking, some nifty little Allman Brothers-referencing guitar flourishes, nice bits of organ (and apparently a Wurlitzer!) and it’s delivered very professionally. It’s mid-paced indie’mericana rock’n’roll that falls somewhere between Dark Dark Dark, Dire Straits and Drive-By Truckers, all perfectly competent bands I’m not too keen on. And it’s done perfectly competently too, and I expect people who like those bands will enjoy this.


9/10 Gav 27th November 2013

Ride Out The Dark flows beautifully along from start to finish. A soft, smooth blend of early Velvet Underground style bass and rhythm with dreamy east coast echoing riffs and unique powerful vocals that stir a number of mixed emotions in the listener.
