JAVIER ESCOVEDO: Kicked out of Eden: CD

The latest solo effort by this Zero is a potent mix of raucous rock that reeks of late nights in Texas and New York bars, ‘60s pop, power pop, and the Dollsy punk he and his ol’ band cut their teeth on four (!) decades back. Grade-A soundtrack to drink way too much and dance way too long into the night. Never, ever dismiss the OGs out of hand, kids.
