Comet Gain - Howl Of The Lonely Crowd

David Feck and Comet Gain have been around since the early nineties, influencing myriad indie acts along the way while peddling their unique brand of guitar pop to a modest, yet dedicated, fanbase. Howl Of The Lonely Crowd is the band's first proper studio album since 2005, produced by the esteemed Edwyn Collins and a certain member of The Cribs, and is a brilliant statement of relevance from a band who perhaps don’t get all the credit due. There’s a whole host of sounds on offer, including stuttering post-punk spunk on the trumpet-flecked ‘The Weekend Dreams’, spacey sixties pop in the form of ‘She Had Daydreams’ and even a psych-rock wig-out on the short, sweet and noisy ‘Yoona Baines’. The album is brilliantly full-sounding and textured in places, and in general comes across as thoughtful, catchy and filled to the brim with a creative joy that doesn’t happen too often with music like this.
