Without a doubt, one of my favorite 2012 discoveries has been Louisville’s Houndmouth. The band recently dropped their debut, self-titled EP via Rough Trade Records. This week Houndmouth shared the official video for their steamroller of a single “Penitentiary“, directed by We Listen For You‘s Zach Hart. Watch below as Houndmouth plays narrator in the story of a young couple wrestling with the decision to turn criminal in the face of financial ruin.
