Japanther’s Ian Vanek making music as Howardian (listen), touring, playing Shea Stadium w/ Guerilla Toss & more


Ian Vanek, who is one half of Japanther, also records low-fi fuzzpop under the name Howardian. An album, Land of the Low Tides, came out back in January and you can stream a couple tracks from that below. Look out for a new EP, A Goddess In Yer Way, this summer.

Howardian is currently on tour with Ben Katzman’s Degreaser (not the mostly Australian band of the same name) and they’ll play Brooklyn on Saturday (4/25) at Shea Stadium with Bueno and Guerilla Toss (who are also playing Northside Fest). All tour dates are listed below.
