Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Howl EP Sessions


Black Rebel Motorcycle Club shocked plenty of people who used to listen to them with the release of their last LP, Howl, choosing to give up their usual Jesus and Mary Chain-feel to a recording deeply influenced by blues, stomp, and beat literature (hence the title: clearly an Allen Ginsberg reference).
And hard as it may seem for those who have not listened to Howl yet, they did make it: they do not sound like a band trying to dance to the Americana-Neo-contry-Post war folk(or whatever people may call all of this)-hype but like someone that has found their roots, and made the best out of it (everytime I get back to that album I always find myself pleased with it).
So what's next? Well, I personally hope they keep up the good work, but in the meantime (i.e. last february) they released (it was available to buy online or on their tour) six more songs from the same sessions -this beautiful Howl Sessions EP. A brief yet valuable download for all you BRMC fans (but not only: tracks such as the mesmerising Mercy or Feel it now are worth more than a try).
