East Los Angeles has a long and proud tradition of bands and fans that create and love good old American rock & roll. East L.A.’s the Bloodhounds are true to that spirit with this debut release. Well-wrought original tunes that are a throwback to cool ‘60s blues-influenced rockers include the opening track, “Indian Highway.” “Hey Lonnie” features some old-timey saloon piano styling and a megaphone vocal! These guys clearly have a bunch of old Pretty Things, Yardbirds and ? and the Mysterians records in their collections. It’s all done with a grand love of making music, with swell musical instincts from a band that clearly enjoys playing together, and doing it well.
