32) “The Mid-Morning Recording” Howling Bells-‘Howling Bells’.
My friend Jeanne once told me that she liked when I wrote about the records I played. I took that as a compliment, because I thought it was just me babbling on pretentiously. So for a while, I stopped writing. In saying that, I think MFL should return to writing about the week's "Mid-Morning Recording". Pretentious as I may sound now or in the future, writing itself it pretty pretentious. I had to start writing about the "MMR" again mainly because I have to say a few words about tonight's freakin' masterpiece. The debut Howling Bells record is one of those albums that everyone should like, but will the crowd jump onto the bandwagon? As usual Orly brought this gem in, and I jumped on with the first listen. I've played this album for several people and everyone that likes good music understands that there is something special with this release. I hate to hype a release so much, but this will certainly be in my top 10 albums of the year, if not the top 5 or even 3. I haven't written anything about the "Mid-Morning Recording" since we started the web stream playback, and I have to say that if you don't listen to MFL live, you should really start. Of course, if you listened live and caught the complete album on the live broadcast, or even if you missed it altogether, then you should really buy this album. The real reason we play a Mid-Morning Recording is to showcase a great band every week, and Howling Bells are a great band. There is some good live footage at You Tube, but I would have to say that seeing this band in the flesh is something I want to do by the end of 2007. For the information they want you to know you can go to their website at and listen to tracks from the album there. Spend the import price and get it now.
Michael - MFL
