Always nice to have new music from Bay Area-adjacent trio The Hipwaders. Their latest effort is a 2-track effort -- think of it as a single with a B side, except it's not on vinyl. The A side is a surf rock effort (if the surf was from the Sea of Cortez) titled "The Boy Who Cried El Chupacabra," a retelling of the "boy who cried wolf" story that is, somehow, perfect for the kids' Halloween season. The B side is a cover of Pointed Man Band's "All That Krampus Wants" for those families who want to get a jump on the later holiday season. (You can grab the single on iTunes or CD Baby.)
In any case, the band's roped in Will Guy to do the animations, and every time the "camera" pans out to show Tito and the band dressed up in mariachi outfits singing in high harmony, it makes me smile.
