Howlin' Rain play loose working man stomps that echo the mid to late 70s and mix it with a bit of latter day guitar freakouts. A departure, but not necessarily a far cry from Ethan Miller (Comets on Fire) and John Moloney's (Sunburned Hand of the Man) other projects but probably the most accessible work from either musician. This album feels like a homecoming for me, sounding like the Faces sitting in for a session with CCR, its steeped in the music I heard playing out of every truck that drove past me with its windows open on summer days in Michigan.
