New Release: Alejandro Escovedo - Real Animal (Back Porch/Manhattan)

Just released today, Alejandro unleashes his 9th solo album Real Animal. Taking a page out of The Boss' book (see "Always A Friend" post), Alejandro steps out of his (recent) comfort zone to produce this truly rock 'n roll infused record, echoing his early days in bands such as the beloved Nuns. Real Animal plays like an audio auto-biography of Alejandro's life. From full-force rockers to his string laced ballads, Alejandro covers all the bases of his wonderful career. This record is some of his best work. Highly recommended.

If you happen to be in Nashville on June 30, come check out Alejandro & Co. at Grimey's.
