The Last Bandeleros - "I Don't Want To Know"
Whew!!! Watch out for these guys, Tex-Mex Tejano spiced rockers, The Last Bandeleros. Having toured with The Mavericks and more recently with Sting, and with this huge nod from Rolling Stone Magazine, it looks like the San Antonio based quartet is in for a huge 2018.
Sufjan Stevens - "Tonya Harding"
Sufjan Stevens released "Tanya Harding" as a single last December, just before the biopic "I, Tonya" was released on December 8th. In this essay, Stevens describes Harding as a "strange and magnificent America hero." With the 2018 Winter Olympics just a single axel away, play this and see if you too, might have wished a softer fall from grace for Tanya Harding.
The Ben Miller Band - "Akira Kurosawa"
Melding clips from old black and white films and contemporary tunes to produce a music video is nothing new. We love 'em! It's fitting that The Ben Miller Band's new upcoming January 26th release on New West Records, "Choke Cherry Tree", uses classic clips from famed Japanese film director and screenwriter Akira Kurosawa to serve as a storyboard for the band's gritty single of the same name. Creative editing brings it all together.
