Howardian (Japanther’s Ian Vanek) releases debut LP

Howardian is the solo project of Japanther’s Ian Vanek, with contributions from a rotating cast of friends & musicians. Though Vanek has been creating music under the moniker for years, today marks the release of Howardian’s debut LP, ‘Land Of The Low Tides’, which comes out via Boston’s BUFU Records and Japanther’s own Tut Tut Now Shake Ya Butt. You can take a listen to Be Fruitful from the album via Soundcloud below.



Like Japanther, Howardian’s tracks feature fuzzy, distorted walls of sound and plenty of samples, all with a scuzzy garage-rock vibe.
