Howardian, another project of Japanther's Ian Vanek, already released the album A Smurf At Land's End this year, and he'll release another album called Do You Know I Wiggle this Friday (10/14). We're told that "this record is the result of experimenting with DMT and free form writing in deep depressive states," and that's certainly pretty believable. It can't be pigeonholed into one specific genre, with bits of shouty post-punk, grizzled blues, various types of psychedelia, spoken word clips, and more. It was recorded in close collaboration with Schuyler Maehl and includes a number of other guests (we aren't told who they are, but we're told they are "incredible"). A stream of the whole thing premieres right here:

Howardian also has tour dates coming up, including a Brooklyn show on October 28 at Tender Trap (66 Greenpoint Ave) with Show Me The Pink. All dates are listed below.
