“Back in July of last year, we met New York rock and roll blues group Skunkmello. The trio (Matt Bartlett, Ed Cuervo, and Jono Ori) had released two EPs — Whiskey & Oatmeal and Lowlife Dreams — and are soon to release their new album Stars & Stripes (out digitally September 16th)! Taken from the forthcoming release, we’re delighted to share Skunkmello’s single Backseat Gypsy. Listen to the track below, and catch the band while on their Fall 2014 tour or at their official NYC Release Show on October 21st. Trust us, we know they can put on a great live show.”
Produced by the band’s resident audio engineer and bassist Ed Cuervo, “Stars & Stripes” is an uptempo, tongue-in-cheek tribute to Skunkmello’s beloved homeland, with sardonic yet infectious lyrics that examine young America’s aptitude for oblivion in pursuit of a good time – a perfect soundtrack for Fourth of July playlists everywhere.
Hey, good looks to the kind folks over at Revolution 360 for giving our Lowlife Dreams EP such a glowing review and for being gracious enough to mention us in the same breath as the greats. Much love. They post great music daily so check ’em out.
