Stream Reigning Sound’s Propulsive ‘Falling Rain’

After braving a slew of lineup changes, Reigning Sound have returned. The brainchild of garage-punk stalwart/principal songwriter Greg Cartwright, the Memphis quintet — which features longtime keyboardist Dave Amels, as well as new members Mike Catanese, Benny Trokan, and Mikey Post — is prepping to add a new entry to its hefty catalogue. On July 15, Reigning Sound will unleash Shattered, the 11-track follow-up to 2009’s Love and Curses and the band’s first LP for Merge Records. First, though, comes “Falling Rain,” an advance track featuring Dylan-esque vocals that coalesce with roller-rink-ready organ as Cartwright croons, “There’s a whole lot more to this story than the sound of falling rain.”
