Review: Rare gem — raucous, raw, delicate

The Rising Storm, 1967. Clockwise from left: Bob Cohan, Charlie Rockwell, Todd Cohen, Richard Weinberg, Tony Thompson, Tom Scheft

“What makes the record so great is how seamlessly this super young band – who were still in high school when they made it– manages to so seamlessly blend raucous garage rock, raw psych, and some surprisingly delicate melodies all in the same set, rivaling far more famous standard bearers of those genres, even though Rising Storm were doing it for fun and were still seniors in high school.” [From Dusty Groove review of Sundazed reissue of Calm Before by The Rising Storm.  To read more, click here. Calm Before is available on vinyl and CD from Sundazed Music, and on Apple Music.]
