Don't with a Child of Reagan

Ian Vanek of Howardian and Japanther singer drummer

Japanther's scorched earth, lo-fi, art-punk music made them one of our fav bands. Comprised of two members, they split up a couple years ago, but not before licensing their hot track 'Um Like Your Smile is Totally Ruling Me' to us for use in our first feature film, I'm Not Patrick.

Now, Ian Vanek, former Japanther drummer-and-singer extraordinaire, is out with a solo project, Howardian, which Spin calls "delectable" and "sweetly scuzzy." Dig it.
