Editorial Reviews

Equal parts dust, groove, folk, rock, dirt, mercury, earth, barn, chaos and gamble, beer, water melon sugar, the Eel River and the great land that surrounds it, all sewn into classic Americana songs full of luscious melodies and hip grinding grooves. Howlin' Rain is unfiltered music, lending to both its glory and its grit and blemishes. The band was formed on a whim, the album was recorded on a free wheel but the blood and sweat that went into bringing it all to life are omnipresent in every ounce of music. The band features Ethan Miller (singer, guitarist for Comets on Fire) on vocal, guitar and songwriting duties as well as John Moloney (leader of Boston's great improv shaman's 'Sun Burned Hand of the Man') on drums and percussion. Birdman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack to the Summer of '73 June 15, 2006
By slappy
Format:Audio CD
Imagine for a moment that its 1973. Its summer, you've stolen a dimebag from your uncle's tacklebox and you've met your friends at the rock quarry on the edge of town. So you roll down the windows in your canary yellow Nova, push in your new 8-Track, and try to have your way with your poor-man's-Marcia-Brady of a girlfriend. That's Howlin Rain. Sounds like a collision between the Grateful Dead-Blue Cheer-Black Oak Arkansas and maybe a dash of Faces-era Rod Stewart.

What spirit motivated someone to make this record in 2006 is beyond me, but I'm glad that the planets aligned and Howlin Rain made ths incredible record. I'm a big fan of both Comets on Fire and especially Sunburned Hand of the Man, but this record eclipses any expectation I might've had about what Howlin Rain could do or be. This album is a time capsule for me, as it captures the sights and smells and sounds of a distinct period of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my goodness... March 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought this based on the reviews comparing it to 60's and 70's rock, and because the band has ties to Comets on Fire (who I really dig).

I was expecting something 60's and 70's...

What I got, was something wholly different.

This is the most original and new sounding album I've heard in a long time. It's progressive folk rock, if there is such a thing. The solo on "Calling Lightning" can be tough to deal with the first time through, but by my third listen, I found tears welling up in my eyes every time it roars through my speakers. This is absolutely awesome and totally original, and if you're open to trying new things you should definitely pick this up. I DO NOT skip any tracks when I listen to this album. I'm trying to think of anything negative to warn people about, but I really can't find anything. If you're looking for the 60's and 70's this will shock and frighten you. If you were born way too late for the 60's and 70's, but appreciate the music from that time period, then you may want to check this out. It is NOT about nostalgia, but about pushing the limits of folk rock music. This album rocks. It rocks hard at times. I won't bother making comparisons, because this DOES NOT compare to anything else out there. Listen to it, if only to find out what a band this original sounds like. Most bands have a strong comparison that can be drawn, but there really is not one for Howlin' Rain. A totally new kind of monster in the music community. I can't wait for their next album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raise a Glass to the Hard Rockin' People August 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD

At times this might be the album Gram Parsons and Keith Richards would've recorded together, or some smokin' Dead outtakes, but then there's the napalm firestorm distortion of "Calling Lightning with a Scythe" or over-amped coronary of "Rollin' On Rusted Days", and it's more like Steve Marriot wailing lead vox for a steroid juiced Moby Grape.

A Bizarro Universe "Beggar's Banquet", featuring fearless guitar squawk & fuzz-wah excess, hypnotically simple riffs, and long songs that aren't long enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to burn bridges to February 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is just a beautiful noise -previous reviews point to folk and I can hear The Faces Rod and the Post Faces Ronnie plus the choogle and the horns of Stax. Their 2nd is good and the 3rd isn't so (too tight - not enough loose) - this is the one though - buy it - no disappointment guaranteed - the best first album of smoking soul induced warpaint rock-n-groove metallic perfection since way back before I was a twinkle. Roll on You Rusted days is my hit the switch and burn my bones home song -but I hope I'll leave enough whiskey and goodwill that they'll play the whole darned album in my memory - it is the good of the ages - beg, borrow or steal yourself to it's greatness - they do not often make them like this anymore.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing to say the least January 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I may not be a highly qualified music critic but I know when I hear good music. I could not in good conscience recommend Howlin Rain as an album reminisent of any music of the 60's or 70's.
