By now it’s safe to say you’ve heard a little something about Howler, so we’ll skip the preamble and cut straight to the chase: Howler’s debut, America Give Up, was just released last week. Pitchfork gave it a 6.0. The Onion AV Club gave it a B. NME gave it an 8/10. And dozens upon dozens of media outlets compared them to the Strokes. But we want you to decide for yourself, so we’d like to send five of our readers home with a copy of the new CD.
