Fricke’s Picks: Extra Howlin Rain

Wild Life (Three Lobed) is a two-track EP by heavy-Seventies explorers Howlin Rain that emphasizes the band's long-jam chops and reunites singer-guitarist Ethan Miller with members of his other band, Comets on Fire, including guitarist Ben Chasny. In the guitar-inferno parts of "Wild Life," a Paul McCartney cover, Miller and Chasny sound like they're soloing inside Big Brother and the Holding Company's "Ball and Chain." "Black Sangria," an improvised instrumental, is simply howlin' fire.
