89 New Christmas Albums of 2019, Reviewed

Unearthed from the vaults - a song recorded 25 years ago, now released to give everyone hope (and something to listen to) during the enforced stay-at-home routine we're all enduring. Keep the faith!

Our tribute to our late father is now available on Spotify.

Atmospheric organ, stinging guitar, punchy singing, hard-charging rhythms . . . and the most unlikely ('The Murder at the Taco Land') character story song akin to something you’d find on an early Bruce Springsteen album.

Written by Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry, “Maybe I Know” is sparking interest among DJs at Little Steven’s Underground Garage on Sirius XM. The new EP includes “The Murder at the Taco Land,” “Baby I Was Wrong,” “Sometimes the Bridesmaid, Sometimes the Bride” and “El Cucuy.” “Saldana Bros.” is available for download on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify, iTunes, Tidal, and more. Stay tuned for Volume 2, due later this spring.

The Krayolas electrifying, high-energy performance at the Paramount Theatre on one of the most magical nights in rock 'n' roll history at South By Southwest's closing-night tribute to Doug Sahm in 2015 was the cherry on top for the acclaimed San Antonio rockers.

"It was our proudest moment to represent our hometown and Sir Doug's," said singer-songwriter Hector Saldana.

Accolades for the Chicano garage rockers ranged from "stunning," "standout" and "a complete revelation" to "a highlight," "aerobic," "gleeful" and "pumpin'" in Billboard, the Austin Chronicle, Austin-American Statesman, Lincoln Journal Star, American Songwriter, Colorado Springs Independent and San Antonio Express-News."

The Krayolas return to SXSW with a new EP, "The Legend Cholly Wayne."

Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the band has garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been featured in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, the Village Voice, 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.
