Howlin Rain Mansion Songs Album Stream

    San Francisco blues rock outfit Howlin’ Rain will release its sixth studio album, Mansion Songs, on January 27th via Easy Sound. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full below.

    The eight-track effort follows up on 2012’s The Russian Wilds and marks the beginning of the band’s forthcoming album trilogy. It’s also the group’s first release since leaving Rick Rubin’s American Recordings. The album was recorded in Eric Bauer’s San Francisco studio, the same space frequented by the likes of Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees.

    A press release describes Mansion Songs as the band evolving “into something strange and true and beautiful,” describing the sound as “made of cigarette ash and swollen moons, salt air and the eggshell light that comes just before the dawn.”

    “When I began this record, I most certainly hadn’t given up, but I was in a dark and trying place,” frontman Ethan Miller says in a statement. “I wanted the album to reflect a dignified despair. Often times that’s what art is; elegant sorrow, pushing through despair with some kind of dignity, in search of a reasonable justification of life.”

    Pre-orders are ongoing.
