We first got hip to the gritty, Spanish blues rockers, Guadalupe Plata a couple years ago and had to give them a Hot Band Alert because they were so damn rad. After interviewing them and catching them live at SXSW (see below), we’ve kept our eyes on these guys and have watched them gain some notoriety.
Guadalupe Plata have just dropped a new album (S/T) and it has all those grimy guitar wails and weathered howls, you’d expect from a solid blues rock album. These boys cut some swampy, foot-stompin’ blues in their Spanish tongue, making for an even more mysterious sound amongst the fuzz and reverb. Guadalupe Plata’s new album is 13 tracks of baddass; it roars with the madness of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins paired with the thick Mississippi blues flavor of John Lee Hooker, staying true to their signature sound.
We’ve been telling your for a while now, listen to Guadalupe Plata! These guys are ill (and really nice and humble). You can download their new album via their Bandcamp.
