West Coast Beats: Psychedelic Blues Rock Band The Blood Moon Howlers


Los Angeles Americana four piece rock band, The Blood Moon Howlers, releases their first full length album Mad Man’s Ruse out today.

The four piece, Psychedelic Blues Rock band, came together to create a ten-song full length album, Mad Man’s Ruse , which features dual male and female lead vocals drenched with heavy swampy blues rock songs that are sprinkled with flecks of smokey burlesque and psychedelic tendencies. They sound what would happen if Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company met up with The Doors and It’s a Beautiful Day. The band layers note upon note, building each song on a blues structure that provides a mesmerizing repetition while allowing the music to roam freely to follow its own innovations.

The band’s innovation lies in their love of exploring various takes on their songs. “One thing about our sound as a band,” Wayne and JuJu point out, “is that we all come from different musical backgrounds so there are many influences and layers to each song and it keeps it kind of fun and spontaneous in the writing/recording/performing process because we never really know how a song is going to turn out in the end.”

The Blood Moon Howlers are also headed out on a Southwest and Northwest tour to support their new album Mad Man’s Ruse starting this September.
