Escondido - Evil Girls
I went to a concert on Thursday despite getting only four and a half hours of sleep the night previous and having a text the next day at eleven. I mean, it was Said the Whale, how could I resist? I had zero clue who the opening bands were and when Escondido went on second, I was intrigued at what they were going to sound like.
They played this song first and I’ll never forget that trumpet. Immediately, I felt like I should’ve been driving down some desert highway in a convertible after having sought revenge. It was all very Kill Bill which was perfect with me. Hell, even they mentioned that their sound is “a washed out desert landscape steeped in American roots music”. I enjoyed the rest of their set greatly and I had a fantastic time that night.
Escondido comes from Nashville and their album, The Ghost of Escondido, was released in 2013.
I hope you all enjoy this selection and that you all have a fantastic Saturday!
