Raccoon Fighter, ‘Santa Tereza’ – Free MP3 Download
Well, a lot actually. New York’s Raccoon Fighter, for instance, add a bit of Southern twang and Spanish flair to jazz up their brand of blues.
The trio’s latest single, ‘Santa Tereza,’ sees them diving deeper into minor-key mystery, combining psychedelic rhythm guitar and a vision akin to Juan Diego’s encounters in Mexico City.
“[It’s] A song describing a fever dream I had while visiting Brazil, ” singer Sean Gavigan tells Diffuser.fm.
Verses filled with slap-back echo, R.E.M.-style backing vocals and dry, driving guitars keep the listener guessing as the song rides mule-back onward in a desert caravan, taking the blues all the way to Yucatan.
Watch out for Raccoon Fighter in 2013 — these guys could get huge.
