5.0 out of 5 stars Haunted by the ghost of Escondido 17 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Beautiful vocals of over mirricone soundscapes, like a 21st century Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood or a slightly poppier Mazzy Star. Visit Escondido now for el grando groovy times

4.0 out of 5 stars Nancy & Lee meet Hope & Ennio 2 May 2013
By hyperbolium - Published on
Format:Audio CD
What if, after cutting his musical teeth in Phoenix, Lee Hazlewood had turned East to Nashville, rather than West to Los Angeles? And what if he'd met Nancy Sinatra in Music City rather than the City of Angels? The answer might sound like a twist on the Western-tinged landscapes of "Summer Wine" and "Some Velvet Morning," and it might have sounded something like the opening track of this Nashville band's debut. Vocalist Jessica Maros' sings a bit more ethereally than Nancy, but with the same confident sass that was catnip to Sinatra's fans. Maros' cohort Tyler James fills Hazlewood's role as vocal straight man, but with a grittier rock 'n' roll kick and a haunting trumpet sound that evokes the sun-baked deserts of Sergio Leone and forlorn mood of Bobby Hackett.

Despite those tips of the sombrero, Escondido isn't a hipster rehash of Nancy, Lee or Ennio, as they also gear down to a dreamier sound that brings to mind Mazzy Star. At times, such as on "Willow Tree," Maros conjures both Nancy Sinatra and Hope Sandoval, and James, along with bassist Adam Keafer, drummer Evan Hutchings and guitarist Scotty Murray paint the backgrounds in spare, atmospheric strums and echoing notes. Recorded in a single day-long session, the album is populated with ruinous femme fatales, lonely sirens and upbeat farewells. The band's hard twanging "Don't Love Me Too Much" was recently featured on ABC's Nashville, which is a larger coup for network television than for a band whose original combination of influences should attract ears from both the mainstream and the outside lands.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ghost of Escondido 19 April 2013
By John Gibbs - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! Tyler James & Jessica Maros are the real deal. The entire project of 10 songs is exceptional. It's hard to pick favorites. I must say "Don't Love Me Too Much" will have you moving in your seat, if not get you up on your feet. I am looking forward to dancing with my sweetheart to the haunting sound of "Black Roses". Cold October, Rodeo Queen, Bad Without You or Evil Girls are just as good. This crew is so Quentin Tarantino. They are Rock, meets country meets, spaghetti western with a twist of brass. I can not recommend this project highly enough. I can not wait to take a group of friends to see them live and I am already looking forward to their next collaboration. Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful debut 10 April 2013

I fell in love with "Black Roses" the first time I heard it on KCRW's radio program Morning Becomes Eclectic. Saw them live here in LA and they did not disappoint. Lead singer Jessica Maros is a captivating performer with a entrancing, soulful vocals. Feels like Mazzy Star with an alt-country vibe.
