This soon-to-be southern bound Koolie High member teased the release of his Leaders of the New Kool record with a Malt Disney-directed video for the lead single. LOTNK was produced with bizarre grittiness by Neckbone Rollins.

RYIL: Polaris, Flake Music, of Montreal
“Bleary,” a dreamy jangle pop cut, is one of two teases shared by Rochester foursome Howlo last Monday. The track will be included on the band’s full-length debut, and will be released later this summer on upstart sister city label City of Quality Records.
