Hoots and Hellmouth New CD and iPhone App
May 20, 2009 —
Mad Dragon Recording artist Hoots and Hellmouth second MDR release, The Holy Open Secret, arrives June 2nd and CD release parties are set for May 28th and 29th at Johnny Brenda's. The new album continues to blaze a trail forward in the name of progressive revival and the trio of Rob Berliner, Andrew Gray and Sean Hoots harmonize along with acoustic guitars, a mandolin, an upright base and foot stomps that burst from both the stage and speakers. Tickets for the release party can be purchased in advance for $12 here, or for $15 at the door.
For those with an iPhone, Drexel Engineering Professor Youngmoo Kim, along with the Music & Entertainment Technology Laboratory (MET-lab) and Mad Dragon Records, has developed a new app specifically for Hoots and Hellmouth. The app provides songs from Hoots' new album, videos of the band performing and info on the band members. This free application is scheduled for launch in early June. It was developed as a Senior Design project by College of Engineering students in Electrical & Computer Engineering who have been working on advanced music applications for the iPhone.
Hoots' unique style allows them to perform in venues from rock clubs to folk festivals. In 2008 alone, Hoots and Hellmouth played over 150 shows including performances at Langerado, Wakarusa and the 47th Annual Philadelphia Folk Fest. The band will soon be headlining the XPN-Fest.
