Product Description

Product Description

"The Ghost of Escondido defies more than one expectation, not the least of which is how the Nashville-based duo Escondido created a vast soundscape live in concert, then turned around and released it as their debut album in 2013. Multi-instrumentalist Tyler James and singer Jessica Maros at times recall a cinemascope, dream pop update of the hazy vistas of Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra, but The Ghost of Escondido also has echoes of Laurel Canyon, not to mention Mazzy Star. This album shimmers like heat radiating off the pavement in the desert; it's out-of-time, out-of-place, a panoramic pastiche of a forgotten West that exists partially on vinyl and partially on celluloid. Any sense of pretension is scuttled by Escondido's choice to record live, which gives the album air and grit, weighing it down when it threatens to float away and giving it mystery when things get perhaps a bit too authentic. It is a balancing act, propping the band somewhere between the past and present, and although The Ghost of Escondido is certainly haunted by communal memories of the past, it lingers in the subconscious because James and Maros choose to favor legend and mystique over humdrum reality."

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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ghost of Escondido 19 April 2013
By John Gibbs - Published on Amazon.com
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.

These two have built some simply great music. Every song is well made and it is all so different. There is no way to pin a genre on this music, it simply wanders, gloriously, all over the place.

Great Album with a fresh sound. They have some horns on some of their songs. I love these guys. I can't wait for their next release.
