Nestled in between inc. and Jai Paul (because it’s in alphabetical order, y’know), Jagwar Ma’s Howlin has been named as one of Pitchfork’s ‘Overlooked Records of 2013′, following their glowing 7.7 review of the Australian group’s debut.
It’s possible to be incredibly ambitious and disarming at the same time, and in that way, Howlin’ isn’t that different in approach to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories– a backwards looking record about loving the present moment, a big-tent affair that can be misunderstood as a reactionary record. (It’s no less reactionary than Noel Gallagher claiming Howlin’ to be more important than an Oasis reunion.) From the moment “What Love” fades in with its loose-limbed, floppy rhythm, Howlin’ ensures everybody will be dancing, few will be doin’ it right, but they’ll all be feelin’ alright regardless.
Jagwar Ma Howlin is available no via iTunes, with a physical release coming August 13.

Remember a few months ago we launched our monthly subscription service, Boombox? Well, since then our subscribers have been hand-delivered digital albums from FIDLAR, Wavves and Polica, have been offered exclusive access to singles from Polica, Beat Club, and Smith Westerns, and have received brand new digital EPs from Neon Indian and Kid Astray before any else has even had a look in… and Boombox is only just getting started.
We have a lot of exciting stuff up our sleeves for the rest of the year, and we wanted to give you guys a taster of everything we’ve been working on (because we feel selfish keeping it all to ourselves). Head over to our Soundcloud player to stream the first installment of what will be a semi-regular compilation series from Mom+Pop, this time featuring singles from Jagwar Ma, Polica, Flume, Neon Indian, Hunters, FIDLAR, Wavves, Kid Astray, Mikhael Paskalev, Beat Club, Animal Kingdom, Smith Westerns, Andrew Bird, and Lucius. Phew!
