David Feck and his revolving crew of musicians have been turning out single-oriented indie pop since the early ’90s, and many of the songs on Howl of the Lonely Crowd, Comet Gain’s sixth album and first studio record proper since 2005, would be at home plugged in at any place throughout the band’s career. Feck and company are tiptoeing gingerly closer to that precipice. That said, it’s hard not to recommend Howl of the Lonely Crowd to an interested listener, as it’s full of the wordy, clever jangle-pop songs that are their mark and trade; there’s just little reason to recommend it over any other album in the Comet Gain discography. Some of the best bands of our day (. U2) never found a grand reinvention to be necessary, and it isn’t, but perhaps that’s a large part of the reason why their earlier, more groundbreaking catalog entries will always be the ones we return to first.

After almost 20 years of being a band, you might expect Comet Gain to sound tired or even played out on Howl of the Lonely Crowd, their sixth full-length. The band, and especially David Feck, the one constant member from the start, still operate with fire in their eyes and a burning passion in their souls. With production by Edwyn Collins and Ryan Jarman (of the Cribs), the album has a lively sound that's loose and ragged around the edges but with a tough inner core that hits hard. The guitars are all feedback and clang, the drums sound like trash bins, the organs whine and hum, and the vocals distort with a seething violence. And that's just on the ballads! Under Feck's guidance, that's to be expected. He's always cared less about the quality of the sound and more about its overall impact.
