More Decent Nouveau Retro

Via KEXP, I found another nouveau retro band that isn't terrible. In fact, I quite enjoy these guys. Howlin' Rain was founded by Ethan Miller, who also founded Comets on Fire which I briefly lauded previously.

They sound kind of like a cross between krautrock (a la the German band Jeronimo) and Deep Purple. Here's a video of a live performance of the above studio track.

I've listened to both of their albums and recommend them both.

Very cool stuff from the Howlers. I like the sound. By the way the div share cuts in and out alot, but i enjoyed the video. Also the other band on the div share, saturnalia, they sound like the reincarnation of The Great Society/ Jeff Air. Have you checked out my recent list of goodies? weirdscenes.blogspot
