Saturday Night at The Howff with Stanley Odd, Storm Gordon and The Pelicans

howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.

The Howff is Bella’s Boozer, your virtual lounge for the lockdown. Every weekend we bring you new releases and recommendations for your listening pleasure. This week we bring you new tracks from Storm Gordon, Stanley Odd & The Pelicans.

Storm Gordon is a singer/songwriter and visual artist . She was born in Glasgow and raised on Arran. Her mother is an artist , and her late father was a jazz musician.  The Howff has the striking video accompanying the beautiful and haunting torch song The Lie I Love The Best for you tonight. You can listen to more on Bandcamp or follow Storm Gordon HERE

Howff favourites Stanley Odd have released Stay Odd their first album in six years and it’s a belter. Recorded over four years, part diary, part news history, its an gloriously odd collection from a band who just keeping getting better. There is a confidence in their songwriting that shines through every track. The latest single from the album Undo Redo is a journey through a seven day cycle of hedonism.

If you like your punk firmly rooted in the garage then Glasgow’s The Pelicans are for you. Their new single Anything For An Easy Life is mostly improvised and recorded live – and it works, you can almost feel the sweat! Find out more about the three-piece HERE
