Howlin Rain - Magnificent Fiend
I've been anticipating a great follow-up to their debut album in 2006, and, i must say, I'm incredibly pleased. It's sounds very similar to their other album, still a relaxed Comets on Fire, and Ethan Miller has managed to pour even more soul into his vocals/lyrics, but what really sets the album apart is the organ and guitar showcases that make an appearance in each track, which gives the music itself the same soul Miller exudes. The last 2 minutes of "Lord Have Mercy" are classic. Check Howlin Rain's myspace for their upcoming tour, which, thank God, is coming to Pontiac, Michigan in late March.
