Song of the Day - July 4, 2006

Happy Fourth of July! As it is that great American holiday, I thought I would feature a song from the New Americana genre. Howlin' Rain is a trio featuring Comets On Fire singer/guitarist Ethan Miller, Sun Burned Hand Of The Man drummer John Moloney, and Ian Gradek on bass. Howlin' Rain's music is raw like moonshine, and also likely to induce hallucinations. Imagine country-laced music as played by Blue Cheer and sung by Rod Stewart and you may have a slight idea as to how Howlin' Rain sounds. "Calling Lighting with a Scythe" starts out innocently enough with a banjo and guitar lulling you into an easygoing mood, only to hit you with lightening as the guitar erupts in a mountain of feedback. It is so unexpected, it will literally knock you off your feet. Click here to listen.
