Press Play At Home: Watch Houndmouth Perform Their Chilled-Out Track "Cool Jam"
Forget a fancy setup or pre-production — bring a guitar, a bass and a drum set into a room, and you can make a cool jam. That's exactly the story behind Houndmouth's aptly titled "Cool Jam."
When the band wrote the mellow tune for their 2021 album Good For You, they initially titled it "Cool Jam 1" as a placeholder that eventually stuck. And considering the way they perform the laid-back track, there really couldn't be a better name for it.
For their episode of Press Play At Home, Houndmouth performed "Cool Jam" in the very place they wrote and recorded it — the Green House. Built in the 1850s, the abode has a lot of history, particularly for Houndmouth: it's where the band formed a decade ago.
