artworkJust two tracks to get a feeling of the band from, and one is just so-so, but the other ("El Pepito") is simply cool! There aren't many instro rockabilly bands out there, and then fewer that write good melodies. Hellfishes seem to have that down!
Picks: El Pepito

Track by Track Review


Temaparamara dotdotdot
Rockabilly (Instrumental)

"Temaparamara" has a very pleasant melody that rides above a classic rockabilly revival beat. It's more repetitious than instrumentals should be, but it nevertheless pleases.

El Pepito dotdotdotdot
Rockabilly (Instrumental)

A tuff galloping beat and pumping upright support a twanging cowboy melody. "El Pepito" is a fine instro that's perfectly western and jivin' and even a little surfy. I like this a lot!
