Howlin’ Brothers may have formed in Ithaca, N.Y., but their sound is pure Appalachia. Now based in Nashville, the aptly named trio hollers and harmonizes as a back-porch combo should. On their fifth album, 2013’s drum-less “Howl,” the (unrelated) brothers plow through bluegrass, blues and swampy Dixieland. Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers and Gov’t Mule co-wrote and performed on one track, the bluesy/gospel stomper “Big Time.” Brendan Benson of the Raconteurs not only produced the recording but released it on his own label, Readymade. Like his Raconteurs partner Jack White, Benson clearly has an affinity for earthy, unadorned Americana. Jon Bream
