Ethan Miller/Howlin Rain: Blog and Cool Downloads


Miller & The Rain
Sometimes we miss stuff (as our comments section so readily points out…), so we want to rectify one oversight by hippin' y'all to Ethan Miller's nifty little Internet niche, Silver Currant. Only recently aware of it ourselves, the blog curated by the Howlin Rain/Comets On Fire man contains his insightful glosses on music and living. He's got a big brain and lot of rough wisdom and it's swell to see him putting it out there for all to see.

In addition, Miller has posted free downloads for an unreleased acoustic Howlin Rain EP called Three From A Phantom Saloon and an electric Six Organs of Admittance album with Comets backing up Ben Chasny. Just scroll down the Silver Currant page and you'll find up and the links to download. You will not be sorry.

Whats the new Howlin' Rain disc like? A buddy of mine went out and got it and told me he hated it. Any input?

My favorite album of 2008. A little "lighter" than the first album. It is more organ-driven and there's less of the crazy guitar echo effects.

Howlin Rain, Comets on Fire are both great bands. Tripped out whiskey swagger and stormy Pacific Northwest energy.

I checked out the Six Organs download mentioned above and definitely dig it.
