We’re stoked this week to have Ethan Miller of Howlin Rain as our guest on No Simple Road this week! Over nearly 20 years, Howlin Rain may have become the quintessential independent American rock ’n roll band: a steam-spitting Hydra of cranked guitars, kicking asphalt dust through a kaleidoscoping travelogue of desert motels and dives, volleying forth transmissions of sci-fi poetry from the blacktop veins of this cracked and aching country. Now, in America 2021, capping these strangest and sorest of times, the band returns with The Dharma Wheel, a six-track, 52-minute dive into a joyous fantasy realm of exaggerated present.
We catch up with Ethan for a conversation about the evolving sound of Howlin Rain, creating the new album ‘The Dharma Wheel‘, his decision to add keyboard wizard Adam MacDougall to the mix, how we can strive to not be like the insects, how he feels now that he’s able to get back at it on the road, ways to be a little more gentle with ourselves, and a whole lot more!
