Houndmouth’s Matt Meyers and Shane Cody catch up with Kyle Meredith to talk about their new album, Good for You.
The pair welcomed Meredith into the very practice space and recording studio that they made the record, affectionately known as The Green House. Coming from Southern Indiana (just across the river from Louisville), Houndmouth take us inside the characters that populate the new LP’s songs and tell about basing the lyrics in the Midwest with a Southern Gothic twist. They also explain why they return to the Kentucky Derby in the title track and how it ties in with the song “Las Vegas” and Matt’s love of poker.
Meyers and Cody also discuss their misspent youth, how parenthood has changed the band, and basing the B-side “Some Paradise” on a stanger’s story as a co-writing assignment.
