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.
