Armed with electric guitars, swooning vocals, and songs that split the difference between rock & roll and dreamy psychedelia, Angela Perley & the Howlin’ Moons pack the biggest punch of their career with Homemade Vision

Like the band’s debut, Hey Kid — an album whose kickoff track, “Athens,” earned Perley an International Songwriting Award in 2014 — Homemade Vision was recorded in the Howlin’ Moons’ hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Many of the songs were dreamt up somewhere along the highways and backroads that crisscross America, though, coaxed into life by a group of roots-rock road warriors who regularly play more than 100 shows a year. As a result, Homemade Vision is the sort of wide-ranging record that creates its own geography, building an imaginary place where the influences of David Gilmour, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, and Nebula all intersect. 

It’s also the work of a genuine band. Chris Connor’s guitar playing — a flurry of fuzz, crunch, twang and bang — occupies just as large a role as Perley’s voice, while Billy Zehnal’s bass — coupled with cymbal crashes and snare hits from an arsenal of heavy-hitting drummers — glues the mix together. Inspired by love, heartbreak, and everything in between, Homemade Vision is a battle cry from a band that’s spent years fighting the good fight, carving out their own brand of atmospheric, aggressive Americana along the way.

“A new album and role as one of the city’s arts ambassadors keeps the altcountry rocker hopping.”- Columbus Monthly (Apr 01, 2016)

“Columbus Alive’s Best Local Band 2016: Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons. Angela Perley & the Howlin’ Moons — one of Alive’s 2014 Bands to Watch — repeats last year’s win in this category, sparked on by a relationship-driven new album, Homemade Vision, filled with songs about lovers who pull together (“Green Eyes”) and drift apart (“Leaving”).”-  Columbus Alive (Mar 31, 2016)

“For me, this album has come totally out of nowhere; but is actually Angela Perley’s second and all of the songs here are self-penned; showcasing an exciting new talent at the dawn of a career; try Leaving; which sounds like a cross between the Cowboy Junkies and Chrissie Hind after a night on the hard stuff; and later I Don’t Want to Be Your Fool is Garage-Pop at it’s best, and would have been a Top 10 hit in the 80’s if it had been on Stiff Records; yet sounds as fresh as a daisy today in 2016. Homemade Vision is an absolute blast from start to finish; and choosing a favourite is like looking into a basket of puppies and being forced to pick the cutest; but it’s a challenge I always set myself and have laboured between the sweet and Summery Dandelion Kisses and the kick-ass Green Eyes with it’s stomping beat, crashing cymbals, fiery guitar and Perley singing her little lungs out just for me.”- Alan Harrison, The Rocking Magpie (Mar 23, 2016)

“The funky groove and bubbling pop undercurrent of White Doves gets the ball rolling, keeping the momentum going with the spacey swirl of Electric Flame (the video for which premiered on Folk Radio UK), a bluesy prowlingYour Love and the riffing swagger of Green Eyes that comes with a big chorus rush that’s part 60s pop, part Zep rock.”- Folk Radio UK (Mar 23, 2016)

“Backed by her four piece band, Ohio-based Perley has been building a solid reputation and following, BBC Radio 6’s Cerys Matthews included. Skewing to the rockier side of Americana roots, the album’s rife with reverb hung meaty guitar and rhythmic crunch, against which her voice sometimes evokes hints of Stevie Nicks and Susannah Hoffs.”- Folk Radio UK (Mar 23, 2016)
