Amarillo folk upstarts Comanche Moon has announced that their debut EP will be officially released Tuesday, November 24 with an accompanying release show at The Golden Light on Friday, November 27. The current three-piece consists of old remnants of the country-folk band Turbine Toolshed.
Listen to the Tex-Mex flavored “Socorro Wind,” the first single, below. At times, it takes nods from Ryan Bingham’s Mescalito with less Panhandle dust caked on vocalist Mark Houston’s country-folk croon. The simple storytelling finds the band banking on honest, effective harmonies in this six-minute rambler that goes from Mexico to Argentina to empty West Texas highways and desolate farmlands.
