Fusing a half-lidded lyricism with the boundless energy of Manchester drug-popsters like the Happy Mondays, Jagwar Ma's ecstatic debut album, Howlin' is a criminally overlooked sunburst of guitar repetition and rhythmic joy, doused in rays of psychedelic sunshine without ever becoming cloying or making you wish the trip would come to end. The duo of Gabriel Winterfield and Jono Ma hit Mercury Lounge for an intimate sold-out show.
