Austin Spotlight: El Campo Return with New Single
El Campo first came to my attention when they released the great Flexi Disc on Punctum Records, which was soon followed by Remember, their debut full-length. Not a band to sit around, they’ve returned again with a brand new song from their forthcoming Double A Side EP, “Sloe-Eyed.” Not to diminish their earlier work, but the execution of this song definitely stands out among their catalog; the voice of Jerid Morris works really well here, soaring to heights with the perfect tone whilst banjo and sliding guitars move behind him. There seems to be some youthful vitality to this song, while still holding true to the progressive country vibe. They’ll be releasing the EP soon, with a nice February tour heading up the Midwest and out to the East. Keep an eye on these guys…it’s for your own good.
