"Duane Eddy twang meets CCR with an 80's cowpunk vibe thrown in for good measure."  

The Howling Faith is a no-frills guitar driven band that blends the "college radio" alt-rock sound of the 80's & 90's with a little surf/twang and some well-placed dynamics to create an LA-meets-Mojave sound. 

 

the breeze 

Good lingering thoughts. I was out in my backyard last night around 9 or 10 and there was a cool breeze, unlike what I usually get in my area. The sky was clear, stars visible, there was a peaceful calm permeating the darkness and silhouettes of still bare tree branches. And when the breeze kicked up, it instantly evoked somewhere else, away from the city. The breeze cooled me, refreshed me, sent me somewhere else, distant. Made me want to be under the stars, at the beach at night, in the desert, on a cabin deck in the forest, on a lonely stretch of Highway 395 near Lone Pine.... Pondering the stars, talking about natural wonders and plants and music and the breeze and the scents it brings, that kinda stuff. Throw in a campfire, even better. Just letting my mind run for a few nice minutes. Wow - something so simple as a cool breeze can whisk me off to magical spaces. That's a good thing, right? And a punch in the stomach at the same time.

We think we have a ghost... 

There's some weird, unexplained activity going on in our practice studio tonight:  Laura seeing a popcorn bag moving back & forth on it's own; same popcorn bag drastically changing position across the room while we talked (we didn't actually SEE it move, but nobody had gone over to it since we noticed it shaking not long before!); guitar slide falling to the ground unprovoked and rolling with force into Danny's foot; moving shadows where there should be none; and now Jaime's got the Ghostbusters gadget on his phone going crazy with blips picking up some type of activity and frequencies, occasionally spitting out actual words, some of which we can really stretch and apply to us!  Not the first time we've noticed things, but never this much in one night.  We're not spooked.  Yet.....

Is it Fall yet? 

...oh to be walking through the higher elevations on a gray autumn day, the ground moist and covered with fallen leaves and pine needles, every step evoking the scent of wet earth and pungent brush.  Various shades of brown and orange and yellow and muted greens are everywhere.  Deep breaths of crisp cool air burns nostrils and tickles the lungs.  Only the crunchy sounds of your footsteps and wind whooshing through the quickly thinning leaves breaks the silence.  You talk to yourself and marvel aloud.
