The group also recently released a music video for their twang-laden cannabis anthem “Green Grass of California”, which debuted on High Times and was subsequently covered by Rolling Stone. “The result is a campfire sing-along that traces the history of California’s most hippie-approved crop,” writes Rolling Stone. Their video for “All I’m Asking” is also streaming via Team Coco, whose elegantly minimalist visuals provides a deft contrast to the track’s sunny melody and Brian Wilson-inspired harmonies.
On January 13th, The Band of Heathens released their new album Duende, the band’s fifth studio album (and eighth overall), marking their tenth anniversary as a group. Duende first premiered with an exclusive stream on Rolling Stone Country. Since then it has climbed to #1 on the Americana Music Association radio chart, with “All I’m Asking” reaching #22 on the Triple A charts as a single. The album has been similarly acclaimed in the press, with Popmatters in declaring Duende to be “the first notable Americana release of the New Year.” Duende is currently available via iTunes and Amazon.
An album built around connection and collaboration, it spotlights a pack of players whose influences – Southern boogie-woogie, stoned soul, heartland country-rock and all points between – are as wide-ranging as their tour dates. – Rolling Stone Country
