2016 repress; originally released in 2008. Howling Songs is the magnificent third and final part of Matt Elliott's Songs trilogy. A work without any definite frontiers, whose only constant heritage lies in European music, particularly Slavic music. A haunted, personal piece of music; its moving melodies follow other moving melodies, balancing between ballads and folk music; madness and reason; revolt and despair. Howling Songs sympathizes with the surrounding world; it is a definitive observation in which one can feel, throughout the songs, the artist's outraged sensitivity in Elliott's lone voice. Howling Songs is, without a doubt, the most introspective album by Matt Elliott and the one that best carries his musical personality.
