The Mowgli’s “Waiting For The Dawn” Album Review

These days, many artists tend to put most of their eggs into one basket; they exert most of their effort into the hit singles that will appear on an upcoming album.  This often leaves the album cuts lacking, which are often the hidden gems of a truly great album.  With that being said, I was somewhat apprehensive when I put the latest album from The Mowgli’s, Waiting for the Dawn, into my car stereo and pressed play.  I had heard the initial track off the album, “San Francisco,” several times before, including on THE IMPACT, and I instantly knew it was a good song.  Actually, I didn’t think it was merely good, I thought it was great; I rarely feel this way listening to a song for the first time.  So, I had good reason to be worried that Waiting for the Dawn would be, like many other albums of the Digital Age, centered on a few good individual songs and fail to create its own identity as an album.

Andy Hull, Jesse Lacey, and Kevin Devine – Jesus Christ

What happens when Andy Hull (of Manchester Orchestra), Jesse Lacey (of Brand New), and Kevin Devine get three acoustic guitars, sit down in a bar in Long Island, NY in front of under a hundred people, and play music with no real direction in mind? The answer is a lot of craziness, forgetting lyrics, making fun of each other, and, of course, artistry. Artistry exemplified by an impromptu folk cover of Brand New’s popular song “Jesus Christ.” Check out some footage of that song below. Read More…
