7" features first single "Out On the Street" and exclusive b-side "There is Something in My Heart" cover of the Ghetto Brothers song from 1971.
The debut album from Spanish Gold - a newly formed band featuring former Hacienda guitarist/vocalist Dante Schwebel, Brownout guitarist Adrian Quesada, and My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan - South of Nowhere is a densely layered love letter to Laredo, the spirited but often troubled Texas border town where Schwebel and Quesada grew up. "It can be a dangerous and violent place, and the border situation is very scary, but at the same time a lot of the people there are really hopeful and happy," says Schwebel.
Exploring the conflict in what Schwebel calls "felling disillusioned or desperate about what's happening around you but still trying to find some hope," South of Nowhere embodies both a high-charged tension and defiantly joyful mood. And in their seamless swirling together of rock & roll, soul, psychedelia, and pop - a summery, groove-heavy sound at turns inspired by Donny Hathaway, '70s rock, and early-'90s hip-hop - Spanish Gold reveal the supreme musicianship and easy chemistry at the heart of their collaboration.
