Howlin’ Sun is finally back with their highly anticipated 2nd album. The sound is familiar for fans of the first album, but this time it is crisper, darker and bigger. The dark and heavy title track «Maxime» – a homage to a legendary former venue in Bergen, sets the stage for the album.
The album is a broad exploration of the rock genre going from southern country rock to gritty garage, complimented by the indie intermission «Jayne» and the americana album closer «Bittersweet Morning Sun».
The album was recorded live to tape in an old sardine packaging plant by the sea side in Bergen, by Robert Jønnnum from Underschön studio. The sound of the room, the feel of the band playing together in real time, and the vintage compressors, audio console and reel-to-reel tape machine gives «Maxime» an organic and warm presence. For fans of classic rock, modern fuzz, blues, southern rock and garage rock.
