Jukebox Time is today featuring The Mezcaltones! Agavé Soirée is a stellar addition to The Mezcaltones’ discography, being their fourth album. The album boasts eight original tracks and one cover, and it continues the band’s Surf Country Tex-Mex vibe, which has always been one of their defining characteristics.
The album commences with an absolute banger in the form of “Matahari Mimi,” which sets a killer surf/spy tone. It’s a perfect start to the album, as it not only captures the listener’s attention but also showcases the band’s unique sound. The first single, “If I Could Make You See,” follows and offers a bluegrass-meets-60s Bakersfield sound. It’s a track that will undoubtedly get your toes tapping and head bobbing.
Another standout track is “Wouldn’t Last a Day,” a cool country blues duet co-written by Dani Young that talks about how relationships can be worked out with some give and take. It’s a beautiful addition to the album.
About the band: The Mezcaltones are a group of six badass musicians who came together because of their mutual love for cool country rockin’ blues and down-and-dirty Tex Mex sounds. They bring their unique style to the fore with “Agavé Soirée”, showcasing their talent for creating music that is both fun and meaningful.
