As humans, sometimes we want to be quiet and introspective and thoughtful… and sometimes we just want to bang on some stuff and yell. The music of Banditos goes perfectly well with that second sort of thing.
If Jerry Lee Lewis fronted Lynyrd Skynyrd, with Chuck Berry playing lead guitar, they might create a huge, unintelligible mess. Or they might wind up with something amazing. Or maybe a little of both.
That theory is put to the test with the first single by Banditos, a Nashville-by-way-Birmingham rambunctious southern rock band.
Their self-titled debut record is due on May 12th via Bloodshot records. You can pre-order it here.
RIYL: Natural Child, upbeat Skynyrd, ragtime piano, good music
