Howlin Rain
Howlin Rain
Oakland, California’s Howlin Rain are touring in support of ‘The Alligator Bride,’ their
fifth LP of swampy, ragged, unapologetic rock ’n roll. Led by Ethan Miller (co-founder of
psych rockers Comets On Fire and Heron Oblivion), the band recorded the album at
the Mansion in San Francisco, direct to tape, in one or two takes. MOJO Magazine
called the collection “an album of sublime crescendos and melodies like warm embraces,
so joyful, so tender, so warmly anthemic, its vintage moves are timeless, and irresistible.”
‘The Alligator Bride’ is Howlin Rain’s first release on Silver Current Records, the artistrun
label owned by Miller, and gleefully indebted to classic rock formations like the
Grateful Dead’s ‘Europe ’72' and Free’s 1969 masterpiece of atmospheric, minimalist
blues, ‘Fire and Water.’ “The guiding principle for ‘The Alligator Bride’ was to create
‘Neal Cassady Rock,’” says Miller. “Which is to say, high energy, good-times adventure
music, driving the hippie bus, shirtless and stoned, up for four days straight, and extremely
fuzzy around the edges.” It’s a fitting vision for the band: torn between eras,
fuzzed out but full of soul, an epic perspective on what’s come before and what lies
ahead, woven into a cosmic tapestry of riffs, rhymes, and resonant frequencies.
Look for Howlin Rain to also release the first in a series of live albums dubbed ‘Under
The Wheel’ in the coming months to document their ecstatic, freewheeling live performances.
Drug Hunt
Drug Hunt
San Diego’s Drug Hunt, formerly known as Bad Vibes returns with a brooding
and boundaryless EP. The s/t EP is more than its parts. A true concept album for
the post-millennial age, the band confronts ritualized power structures in an
increasingly desensitized society with Post-Punk defiance, psychedelic
perceptiveness, and the driving ambition of early British hard rock.

Early feedback has likened the release to “A modern Doors album produced by
Steve Albini, written by Nick Cave, and fronted by The Stooges at a biker bar.”
