Bio


Surfing on the Río Grande

Is it Country? Or Western? Or really Latin, Cajun, Tex-Mex, Surf...?
Are we in Texas? Mexico? Colombia? Hawaii?
Endless questions which surround Los Santos' new album. One thing however is sure: The musical balance act is as highly ambitioned as it is successful. Just like surfing on the Río Grande. A trekking tour through many countries, even more landscapes and all sorts of weather. Yee-haw!
To make it work the "five charismatic countryfolk" (Billboard) from El Quinto Coño, Texas, make a huge effort: Accordion and guitar ride out front, steel guitar and drums pull the covered wagon and singing holds the group together - boosting moral! With songs about love, alcohol and a life far beyond borders and the reach of law. ¡Si señor!
"Surfing on the Río Grande" is an album which allows us to dream. Of the Prairie and the Pacific, Albuquerque and Acapulco, surfboards and sombreros. An album which sometimes wants whisky, sometimes a tequila or even a piña colada. An album which tells us wild stories but also give wisdom and solace. We just need to saddle up the CD player and spur on the music. Aloha.

"Blue in Hawaii is a Western/Tex-Mex celebration performed by stellar musicians. Instrumentation includes pedal steel, ukulele, dobro, banjo, and of course, accordion – Stefan Hiss is an amazing accordionist!... One of my personal favs on the album is “Johnny Guitar” (a great tune written for the 1954 movie). They’ve captured just the right amount of “Out West” surrealism... And their version of “Rag Mop” swings!"
- Maggie Martin, "A Mad, Mad World" weblog (Mar 01, 2010)

"...saludos los santos, suenan muy bien y tocan excelente, dan ganas
de sacar el caballo y recorrer las llanuras de nuevo...
...Nice sound, and very good steel guitar!...
...You guys are great! I love the accordion and the killer steel...
...Great songs, great music, great sombreros..."
