I See Hawks in LA - Shoulda Been Gold

I See hawks in LA
album: Shoulda Been Gold

140 Characters;
Listening to “Shoulda Been Gold,” one gets a chill as if I See Hawks in LA should have already broken out of their Americana genre.

140 Words:
I See Hawks in LA conjures visions of wooden porches, whiskey sours, lap dogs and hand-rolled cigarettes. And that’s not to say this is lazy music; they write about varied topics, never grounded in one theme or location. Literally. Their restlessness takes them from LA to West Virginia, Ohio to Mexico.

When listening to “Shoulda Been Gold,” one gets a chill as if I See Hawks in LA should have already broken out of their Americana genre.

I’m reminded of the last Replacements album where Paul Westerburg sings a thinly veiled commentary about his band in “Someone Take The Wheel.” It’s that sort of pining for the success they deserve.

With the band already well-respected in the alt-country realm, this collection of their favorite tracks will be welcomed warmly.

Hightlights:
“Shoulda Been Gold”
“Hope Against Hope”
“Grapevine”

Haiku:
I’m listening to
some I see Hawks in LA
Why aren’t these guys big?
