TUNE Baker Island - Doomed Howard
From Baker Island's second album Restless Legs, released 25th August 2017 on Philophobia Music, available on vinyl and download.
Doomed Howard is garage-noise-pop, full of slack, upbeat misery. Never a joyous moment lyrically the song, however, tries to outdo itself in how many hooks it can fit into each section, as if a prog-rock songwriter has just discovered that pop songs can sometimes be just as worthwhile. "Like the fuzzy love child of Pavement and Pixies” (NARC. Magazine).
