Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Howl on 2LP
Vinyl reissue of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's third album Howl, originally released by RCA/Echo in 2005, cut as a double LP with embossed gatefold sleeve.
Named after Allen Ginsberg's famous poem, the 12-song set marks a noticeable departure in the band's sound, infusing elements of country, blues and gospel as well as underlying themes of sin and salvation. A tribute to their hometown of San Francisco and its ties to the Beat generation, the album's appropriated retro feel may also have T Bone Burnett to thank who happens to be credited in the liner notes for "additional recording assistance."
With low-key Americana anthems like "Shuffle Your Feet" and "Ain't No Easy Way," Howl may be an uncharacteristic release in the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club catalog, but it's no less rewarding or musically accomplished.
