    This was the second album The Howling Kettles made. We printed a bunch of copies, went on tour, then mostly broke up. The record is gritty, string band music, recorded entirely live. We tracked the album in our living room in Brattleboro, VT, where Sam Moss and I were based at the time. This album has become a bit of a "rare gem" from our back catalog.

“If you’re looking for the polished, newgrass music that’s so prevalent today, this isn’t the band for you.” - Ammuse

“giddily communicative, celebratory, and wildly, rhythmically physical.” - Dusted Magazine


The Parlor Is Pleasant On Sunday Night" is the second album from Vermont based old-time music explorers, The Howling Kettles. Jackson Emmer (mandolin, banjo) and Sam Moss (guitar, fiddle) have dusted off ten rusty old gems from the North American songscape and breathed their own particular brand of life into them. These are songs of jubilation, nonsense, yearning, and defeat. Songs that make you jump out to the dance floor, and on occasion, crumble back into your chair.
