Escondido prepare for February Release: Walking With A Stranger

Up and coming music blog New Interstice recently released an article and video on Escondido that is too good not to share.

Escondido is Nashville, TN based artists Jessica Maros and Tyler James.  Recorded live in a single day, their debut album, The Ghost of Escondido, was self-released in 2013 to critical acclaim.  Their David Lynch approved desert rock was described by Vogue as “One of the rare alt-country crossover acts with highbrow cred” and led to appearances on Conan and ABC’s “Nashville.”  Following the release, the band toured North America and Europe with the likes of Lord Huron and Wild Cub while spending their down time composing music for TV & Film.  Most recently, they wrote a song with Lena Dunham for characters Marnie & Desi in the upcoming season of HBO’s “Girls.”  The duo recently completed their follow-up album, Walking With A Stranger.

The pair met while James was recording their mutual friend at his home studio.  “Jess was quietly strumming this song Rodeo Queen on the couch while everyone else was making drinks in the kitchen.  I pushed record and added a little groove before folks got back in the room.  Later that night we listened to it and both said ‘You wanna make a record?’”  They spent the next two months crafting the songs and bonding over a shared love of spaghetti westerns and songwriters from the 70’s.  “We’d put on Ennio Morricone every morning,” says Maros.  “It’s an easy process when you both love the same stuff.”

His beat is undeniable and songwriting is apropos.

1. Home is where your story begins, can you tell us a bit about yours?  

I live in a barn in Austin, Texas.  It’s near the downtown area where the concrete grows like grass, and the police sometimes ride horses as a novelty show.  I record, and sleep, and sweat, and get cold, and probably whatever you do too, here.  It’s a time-warp and I’m losing.

Gena Perala- Vancouver, CANADA

This session is purely spooky in a heavenly tone.

Gena Perala is a raw mix of Vancouver meets Brooklyn. Her essence is strong and style is bold.

‘Perala grew up as a carny kid, spending much of her childhood traveling with her family on the carnival circuit.  Perhaps this explains her astute lyrical insight into human nature and the world around us.  She wears her heart on her sleeve and is refreshingly herself. Her lyrics, her voice and her willingness to bare all, create an atmosphere of poignancy and revelation.  She was once described as “Jewel meets Peaches”, which is a pretty good description.
