Banditos: New Song & Debut Album

We first introduced you to Banditos 2 years ago (around the same time as Lorde) as part of Muruch’s Surfacing series. Now the band is set to release their debut self-titled full-length album via Bloodshot Records (one of our favorite labels) on May 12th. You can hear the first single, “Cry Baby Baby” below…

Introducing Banditos

Banditos are an independent, brilliant, bluesy, rowdy, genre-hopping band from Birmingham, Alabama. Their cited influences include everyone from Aretha Franklin to Hank Williams, Sr. to Squirrel Nut Zippers, but frontwoman Mary Beth Richardson’s howl and the band’s rough, rustic rock instrumentation could just as easily be compared to Janis Joplin, Heartless Bastards and/or Alabama Shakes. You can download their six-song, self-titled EP (it’s name your own price, so just enter $0 to download for free) and watch the video for the standout track “No Good” below. If you have good taste in music, you will love this band.
