Howlin Rain

It's like CCR on acid. It's like a more intense and focused Grateful Dead. It's like My Morning Jacket with Taylor Hicks (yeah, I watched a couple episodes, don't judge) on vocals. It's an amazing mix of classic southern rock and psychedelia. It's so stupid and sloppy and over the top, you can't help but love it. It's gotta be the year's best soundtrack to drinking beer on your porch on a summer afternoon. We're talking, of course, about Howlin Rain's self-titled debut. This has me floored and makes me want to finish with my finals so that I can test the drinking/porch hypothesis.
