Think Black Lips meet Natural Child and then throw in some of the coolest down home sounds you’ve heard since The Basement Tapes.. , love it!!!!
from Alive Naturalsound Records / The Bloodhounds
The BLOODHOUNDS play Blues / R&B rock n’roll with a fresh, edgy, almost punk edge, and add a hint of a Latin groove to the mix. These guys are from East LA, and if you haven’t heard the news, that’s where it’s all goin’ down these days!
Though founded on electric sound they also dig the old jug band style of playing. Picking up cheap acoustic guitars, turning ordinary household items into instruments and constructing a traditional washtub-broomstick bass, they often busk in the streets of downtown Los Angeles to the delight of large crowds.
The band, formed by Aaron “Little Rock” Piedraita on rhythm guitar, Johnny Santana on bass, Branden Santos on lead guitar, and Mark Schafler on drums and percussion, was discovered by Arthur Alexander (The Poppees, Sorrows) who has produced their debut album “Let Loose!”.
