Les Blanks - Shoot The Horse


Les Blanks (Echo Park, CA)

Every so often I get a record in the mail from an LA local band that completely floors me. Last year it was The Henry Clay People's Blacklist The Kid With The Red Mustache. Before getting their press kit in the mail I'd only seen their name on concert calendars. Now they're one of my favorite bands PERIOD and I consider them good friends.


The latest record to join the club - Les Blanks (pronounced LESS Blanks for those who keep askin'). Their new album Shoot The Horse is available today and has been in regular rotation for me for about a month now.

It's really hard to describe exactly what they sound like because well - it sounds like a lil bit of everything. I was planning to write a full album review today but ran out of time (look for one tomorrow for sure). In the mean time here's the cliff notes - It's one of the best rock n' roll records I've ever heard.

They're giving away MP3s of the album for FREE on their website (they do ask for donations so please throw them a few bucks). Go download right now and see what all the fuss is about.

Les Blanks will celebrate their album release TONIGHT at Spaceland with performances from Correatown, Amateurs and The Monolators. You can pick up the album on CD AND Vinyl.

Course we all know how much I heart vinyl......
