Mmmm Caballero, I love me some good Don Cab

Don Caballero - awesome band
This is them. The only band I can think of at the moment where every time I re-listen to one of their tracks I find that it starts to make sense. They are creating masterpieces..
We're talking of course about Don Caballero.

They signed to Relapse Records to release "World Class Listening Problem". The last but one track off that album is available for streaming and downloading on the MP3 page of Relapse Website.
It's called "Savage Composition" and that's exactly what it is. The savagery is in the unexpected time changes and syncopated beats that somehow flow through the music. It's a composition in that it is melodic and structured. Here is the link to this track. Press the blue button to start listening to it almost instantly.

Don Caballero - "Savage Composition"

There you go. That wasn't difficult was it. Now listen. This music demands attention. Don't put it on and then go and make a cup of tea and walk away. Put it on quietly by all means. But just listen. Can you not tap your feet/lap???

More later...

Hey check out Patrick Morris' (ex-Don Caballero) newer band called the Poison Arrows. Their new EP called 'Straight into the Drift'comes out MARCH 20 on FILE 13 records.

the album features ex-members of Don Caballero & Atombombpocketknife.

The EP's songs have a whole new developed sound that would appeal to fans of Unwound, Shellac, Don Cab. bass loops, angular guitars, sweet drum beats, droney keyboards!

check out the new stuff on their myspace
