Tuesday Double Feature: Reckless Ones "Dead & Gone" & The Hillbilly Moon Explosion "My Love Evermore"

This week's Tuesday Double feature feels like it's right out of the Grindhouse Theaters of the 60's and 70's.

Reckless Ones - "Dead & Gone"

This post-apocalyptic video from Minneapolis rockabilly band the Reckless Ones plays like Lance Mungia's Six-String Samurai. This Midwest three piece personifies all that is holy in the rockabilly world: Tattoos, hot-rods and curvacious women worthy of a Petty pin-up calender. Denying the sterile sound of the present these boys wrap themselves in the warm tones of their retro goodness and the world is better for it.

The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - "My Love For Evermore"

Like a David Lynch film this video by Zurich based The Hillbilly Moon Explosion has an off putting high art feel that would make Tarantino jealous. With a brand new album Buy,Beg or Steal filled with the haunting vocals of Emanuela Hutter and the swinging top shelf Americana their known for. This band is expanding it's fan base with leaps and bounds.
