Green Leaf Rustlers
“From the sage smoke and mists of Marin come your local purveyors of Cosmic Cali country music, playing the dusty country classics of your dreams.”

Green Leaf Rustlers are:

Chris Robinson joined by multi-instrumentalist Barry Sless (David Nelson Band), bassist Pete Sears (Jefferson Starship, David Nelson Band), drummer John Molo (Phil Lesh Quintet, Bruce Hornsby & The Range) and guitarist Greg Loiacono (The Mother Hips).

"Chris Robinsons orbital pull is not unlike that of Mercury or Mars. CR spends so much time in outer space, merrily revolving around the rock and roll solar system he’s pulled in satellites, space freaks and shooting stars all in the form of stellar musicians of the “All-Star” variety...the cosmic rangers known as The Green Leaf Rustlers are just that! A down to earth all-star rock and roll band that’ll put your head in the stars"

Oakland, California’s Howlin Rain are touring in support of ‘The Alligator Bride,’ their fifth LP of swampy, ragged, unapologetic rock ’n roll. Led by Ethan Miller (co-founder of psych rockers Comets On Fire and Heron Oblivion), the band recorded the album at the Mansion in San Francisco, direct to tape, in one or two takes. MOJO Magazine called the collection “an album of sublime crescendos and melodies like warm embrac- es, so joyful, so tender, so warmly anthemic, its vintage moves are timeless, and irre- sistible.”
‘The Alligator Bride’ is Howlin Rain’s first release on Silver Current Records, the artist- run label owned by Miller, and gleefully indebted to classic rock formations like the Grateful Dead’s ‘Europe ’72' and Free’s 1969 masterpiece of atmospheric, minimalist blues, ‘Fire and Water.’ “The guiding principle for ‘The Alligator Bride’ was to create ‘Neal Cassady Rock,’” says Miller. “Which is to say, high energy, good-times adventure music, driving the hippie bus, shirtless and stoned, up for four days straight, and ex- tremely fuzzy around the edges.” It’s a fitting vision for the band: torn between eras, fuzzed out but full of soul, an epic perspective on what’s come before and what lies ahead, woven into a cosmic tapestry of riffs, rhymes, and resonant frequencies.
Look for Howlin Rain to also release the first in a series of live albums dubbed ‘Under The Wheel’ in the coming months to document their ecstatic, freewheeling live perfor- mances.
