Living Things - "Let It Rain" (video)

by PopMatters Staff

5 February 2009

 

Zeth Lundy thought pretty highly of Living Things’ 2005 effort, Ahead of the Lions, giving it an 8 and called it “a punishing, accessible hard rock record, a marriage of the rock ‘n’ roll fetish of the MC5’s Back in the U.S.A. with Nirvana’s wicked decibel annihilation”. The band’s newest album, Habeas Corpus, releases February 17th on Jive. “Let It Rain” is the first single, with the video directed by Floria Sigismondi (White Stripes, David Bowie, The Cure).
