Howlin Rain: Magnificent Fiend
Buy! - (Birdman/American)
This Bay Area band led by Comets on Fire frontman Ethan Miller is back with a revamped lineup for their 2nd album, taking a giant step forward with a more fully realized sound and better songs. While quite a few bands nowadays are taking inspiration from late ‘60s-early ‘70s classic rock, Howlin Rain nail it on this excellent album of soulful psych-rock with complex arrangements, rolling rhythms, fiery guitar passages and Miller’s hoarse, growling vocals. 2/4/2008 - Don Yates
