“The Rising Storm grew out of an impromptu jug band of Andover sophomores, soon teaching each other the guitar licks they taught themselves … it was the Rising Storm’s handful of dreamlike, sensitive-boy originals, largely inspired by the fantastical West Coast band Love, that set the group apart … On [January 12] the specialty label Sundazed reissues ‘Calm Before,’ the Rising Storm’s self-financed, ultra-rare debut album, recorded during the bandmates’ senior year at Andover.” [From feature story in The Boston Globe, 01.10.18.
