"Only my hometown could produce a power-pop group like The Krayolas. Their 21st century Tex-Mex sound picks up the tradition that Doug Sahm started and carried through various incarnations. On their new 8-song album, 'Canicas" (Marbles),' band leader Hector Saldaña takes the traditional corrido 'La Inundación de Piedras Negras' (The Flood of Piedras Negras) and gives it a rock 'n' roll arrangement that's remindful of T-Rex." Full review is here.



    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.
