Now Playing: Gringo Star – “Light In The Sky”

17 Nov

Another band I’m really jamming to these past few weeks is Gringo Star. The Atlanta quartet are back with their sophomore effort, Count Yer Lucky Stars, which was released last month.  It may take you a couple listens of the album to get into these guys but you should find a little bit of southern rock n roll-psychedelic tunes perfect to get you through the day.  Here’s what I think is one of the top tracks off the album, “Light in the Sky.”
