Howardian - Ian from Japanther! From Olympia, WA, rocking out with that fuzzed out steez and fully-loaded riffage Japanther is known for, but this time the non-stop adhrenaline rush is traded in for a more mellow cruise down the coast towards the corner of Chill Hard and Hang Tight. "True story: Nobody in the history of North America has ever said no to two minutes of lo-fi, high-energy, distortion-soaked garage rock. That's what Howardian, solo side project of Japanther co-founder Ian Vanek, has provided here with the delectable "Be Fruitful," the first blast from the upcoming Land of the Low Tides LP. The album is Vanek's first full-length as Howardian, and if it's all this sweetly scuzzy, it'll be one to keep an eye on for in the New Year." - Spin
