With a musical vision begun, sometime around 2008, by guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Britton Newton, New Orleans’ experimental-rock outfit Biscuithound uses the “rock” sound as a framework for their often lengthy compositions, balancing an accessible use of melody and catchy riffing with healthy doses of progressive adventurism and gritty contrast.
2010’s “Meet You at the RIverbone” presented itself like a singer/songwriter rock album, ambitious with its instrumental segments and conceptual use of cinematic-style sound design. Being a foundation that the band could push-off from, Biscuithound sought to take things deeper and heavier in live performances over the next years.
After a period of reformation and redirection, 2018’s long-awaited “Possible at Sea” followed Newton’s studies at the University of New Orleans in music theory and audio production — which now allows the band to self-produce their music. The second album shows a maturity over its predecessor, with a bigger sound, containing dense layers and evocative lyrics meant to be consciously listened-to, in the foreground. Floating somewhere between post-grunge, spacey soundscapes, and subtle improvisations, the band delivers a new edge with an emotional and intellectual seriousness.
Biscuithound consists of:
Britton Newton - guitars, vocals
Wade Hymel - drums, percussion
Nicholas Baillio - bass
Benjamin Thomas - organ, piano, keyboards
Ryan Church - guitars
