Howlin Rain - Magnificent Fiend (2008)

This is classic psychedelic garage rock at its best, full of squiggly guitars and fuzzed up solos. The strained vocals backed by B3 pay homage to laid-back rambling man southern rock. However, it's the overall quality of the songs make this album stand out in an otherwise well-worn genre. "Calling Lightning Pt. 2" and "Lord Have Mercy" are just awesome. I bet they're even better live.
