With a nod to ‘The Good The Bad and The Ugly‘ in both the title of this instrumental (yes folks, instrumental Wednesday afternoon is back!) and the rather stylish video which accompanies it, Hermanos Gutiérrez brin g the wide open spaces of the Spaghetti Western to Americana UK today.  This is the title track of the new album from Swiss-Ecuadorian duo Hermanos Gutiérrez, comprised of brothers Estevan and Alejandro Gutiérrez, which is set for release on October 28, 2022 via Easy Eye Sound, the acclaimed label founded and run by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

There’s epic space all through this one, as Estevan Gutiérrez explains: “When Alejandro and I play together, it’s like we are driving a car.  It’s like we are taking a road trip. Sometimes we’re driving through a desert. Sometimes we’re traveling up the coast. But always we are in nature, and we see the most beautiful landscapes, sunrises, sunsets.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
