branditosWith all the laptop groups and beard-core shoe-gazers out there these days, doesn’t it feel nice when you run into just a good ol’ fashioned, three-piece rockabilly band? The Branditos can proclaim themselves as cow punks, but their catchy, taut songs about fast women, corn whiskey and squealing tires make them a 1950s-style rock’n’roll breath of fresh air in a world thick with digitized noise. Bassist Bruce Rosera and drummer Jason Wussow provide a solid double-time, up-tempo beat for guitarist Brandon Swanson to weave his bleary-eyed shouts and grunts.
