93XRT WELCOMES JC BROOKS AND THE UPTOWN SOUND CD RELEASE OF “HOWL” Beer specials and samples provided by Lagunitas! JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound celebrate CD release of “Howl” on Bloodshot Records – available for purchase May 21! With Howl, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound enters the next chapter of its soul sound evolution. In December 2012, the band holed up at Hotel2Tango Studio in Montreal to work with producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and dove headfirst into previously unfamiliar sonic territories and tough-yet-transfixing lyrical matter. By approaching the new album with this direct and free outlook, what began with the raw soul of 2011’s Want More advances in new, exciting directions.
