When I was young I had a stuffed cat. It used to be my favorite pet; it died; my parents stuffed it; slept with it every night till I was 23. It eventually became infested with a nest of spiders. So i had to get rid of it. Actually, I never had a cat, I never stuffed it, but this Howlin' Rain makes me think of this scenario. It could possibly be cause it IS a concept album about a young man who sleeps with a stuffed cat till he is 23, but I'm not sure.
Mansion Songs makes me so angry I can't even think straight. I am literally typing out of rage right now. I just broke a glass on the floor. god damn it! Howlin' Rain's vocals style sounds like it's straight from the mouth of some piece of euro-trash 90s rapist mouth breather masquerading as a southern recluse.
Ok after listening to the first song, I'm done with it. I'm going ignorant on this, people. Get it or don't I don't care. I classify this "NEW" music as indie jizz.
