Sam Houdek is one of our favorite Austin musicians; he plays in all the bands you love and have loved (including ATH Records alum Growl)…most recently as a member of Why Bonnie. But, he’s also quietly been working on his own solo stuff as Most Likely, spending the last few years finishing up the various tunes that make up his debut self-titled LP. Some of the song’s we’ve been privy to previously, like standout jam “Steve,” but I definitely have found that “Corner” is one of the special tunes in this collection. It’s always great seeing someone you believe in drop something so wonderful, so spend a few minutes with Most Likely today.
You read that right, Planet Manhood is no more. Instead, Sam Houdek (who also plays in Growl) has changed the name of his project to Most Likely. With that name change also comes new music, hinting at a future LP in the works. Perhaps my ears are deceiving me, but his vocal work here seems to recall the early stuff of Elf Power (my favorite EP period), and you’ll also get some of Sam’s signature guitar sound, even as he needles away at bent strings and feedback. We already loved the work of Planet Manhood, and with more great songs, wouldn’t expect anything to change, other than the name. Enjoy Most Likely.
