MP3 Freeloader: Tonight, Hawks of Paradise at the Oriental
If you miss the halcyon days of blues-based rock with just a hint of psychedelic haze, then tonight's CD-release party for the Hawks of Paradise album Skeleton Key will make you very happy. We've compared this outfit to Bob Dylan and the Velvet Underground, but what you really need to know is that this outfit's vintage sound elevates itself above mere mimicry by the passion apparent in every note and lyric. After the break you'll find the song "The Getaway" for your free downloading pleasure, and you can grab the whole thing tonight at the Oriental, where the Hawks will be supported by Moonspeed and the Widowers.
