Check out this week's issue of NME and you'll see Howler are our About To Break band in Radar.

The Minneapolis teens are new on Rough Trade, with their debut EP 'This One's Different' out on Monday. Spookily that's ten years to the week since Geoff Travis' label released 'Is This It'. Coincidence? Er, yeah, actually it was.

Anyway, to celebrate the fact the band know their way around a Danelectro and a singalong chorus, we got them to record us something special, and here it is.

Howler, playing 'You Like White Women, I Like Cigarettes' in singer Jordan's parents' kitchen:

Sidenote – I like the wood-panelling around the sink. Oh, and if you're wondering who the picture on Jordan's guitar is, it’s Howler's keyboardist Max. He was at a festival at the time of filming. Priorities eh?
