Daniel Mee, 29-95 Music

May started off with a bang, as San Antonio roots-rock veterans The Krayolas fired off a shot heard ‘round the world (that is to say: Texas): ‘1070 (I’m Your Dirty Mexican),’ recorded in protest of Arizona’s recent passage of a hard-line immigration law. The song’s gloomy, slow-burning groove, augmented with Farfisa, fits the ominous, if sometimes perplexing lyrics . . . all the same, the song has some bracing lines, in particular the chorus.”

    Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the Chicano garage rockers have garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been profiled in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, Rolling Stone, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Alt-Latino” and MTV, and are regulars on SIRIUS XM “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Dave Marsh’s “Kick Out the Jams,” KUTX and Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Roots and Branches of Americana.”

    In 2014, the Krayolas were inducted into the Texas Music Office’s South Texas Music Walk of Fame.
