self harmonize this
Howie's first big break was opening for Tori Amos during her tour to promote Scarlet's Walk. What attracted me to him was not so much the content of his music (it's often very "teen boy trying to laid"), but the fact that he would play every part of music -- lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass guitar, drums, and sing the melody, counter-melody, and harmony -- all on stage with just his guitar and a loop pedal. It was really something to watch, and when I finally made Andrew sit down and check it out, he made fun of me for liking someone who self-harmonized. Unfortunately, Howie took on a stand-in band once he got big, so basically he's a John Meyer clone.
Tori Amos has been self-harmonizing forever...not every band can be as chic-punk-dyke as Sleater-Kinney biatch.
