CD of the Week from Spanish Gold

Jul 6, 2014


South Of Nowhere is the debut album from the trio Spanish Gold, formed last year by former Hacienda guitarist and vocalist Dante Schwebel.  Schwebel had originally wanted to work as a solo artist, but soon decided to make Spanish Gold a band project.  Former Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada and My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan completed the trio.  Their soul, rock and hip-hop influenced record was primarily recorded at Dan Auerbach's studio in Nashville, with additional recording in Austin, Texas.  Spanish Gold have crafted a wonderful American melting-pot of an album with South Of Nowhere.
