New Band To Burn One To: AMIGO



Influenced by the lush palms, rural canyons, undulating landscapes, and little cliffs that make up the pseudo desert that is San Diego, Amigo was born. Led by front man Jeff Podeszwik, Amigo is a riff based rock band with heavy hooks, melodic vocals and fuzz driven guitars. Whether it be a tale of tragedy, a practice in prose, an untold story, or a rumor in the school hall, instructions have been given to let you in on these secrets. After all....that's what friends do. Join the cult of Amigo today!.....dudelings!


"As the sweltering heat of the California sunshine warms your skin, the heavy desert groove of San Diego rockers Amigo rattles your skull. With an abundance of sun-kissed riffs and catchy hooks, the band hits cruise control and settles into a nice mid-tempo groove on their latest self-titled EP. Opener "Cosmo Blaster" is a fuzz-heavy romp that immediately gained my attention with their ode to desert/stoner kings Kyuss and Fu Manchu. "Mojave Sol" is a slick swaying rocker with a sound reminiscent of lets say, Urge Overkill? "How Wet Can You Get?" has a light and airy feel but the warm heavy fuzz ultimately steals the show. The EP ends with a killer live version of fan favorite "Cosmo Blaster". Very cool band with huge upside!"
