This is fantastic! Escondido’s debut album, The Ghost of Escondido, churns the retro-influenced pop-rock of Sugar & the Hi-Lows with the haunting, low-fi pop-folk of Mazzy Star and the slinky Western-tinged noir of Rykarda Parasol. Escondido are Nashville duo Jessica Maros and Tyler James and they recorded their debut live in one day, Highlights are “Evil Girls,” “Rodeo Queen,” “Bad Without You,” “Willow Tree,” “Don’t Love Me Too Much” and “Keep Walkin’”…so basically the whole album. You can download a free, legal mp3 of the track “Cold October” below. The Ghost of Escondido will be released February 26th.
