Last we heard, the great American coastal jammers, Howlin Rain, had signed with Rick Rubin's American Records. The first LP for that label is titled Magnificent Fiend and is slated for a March 4th release. I haven't heard the whole thing yet, but there a good bet they'll unleash those beasts when they play Neumo's January 31. For now, here's a little Myspace sampler, a track from said forthcoming long-player. Prepare to have your stoner-skull cracked wide open!
