New Music: Cayetana

One of the most impressive things a band can do is make you change your initial impression of them. I first heard Cayetana a couple days ago on NPR's All Songs Considered podcast. The band was introduced as a Philly punk band and the song they played was called "Hot Dad Calendar." In my head I kinda dismissed them as probably not my type of music and too cutesy or weird with their song titles. I figured I'd zone out a bit until the next band was introduced on the podcast. The thing is, about halfway through the song I realized I was nodding my head to the music, drumming along, and starting to sort of sing the catchy chorus to myself. By the end of the song, I figured I'd at least check out their stuff sometime to see if I liked the rest of it. Well, it turns out I did, and I'm fully on board with this band now. I think I listened to the album four times in a row initially, and I've returned a few more times since then.

So... check out "Hot Dad Calendar" by Philly punk band Cayetana below, and try not to write them off too much (like me) til you hear the music.

If you like it, it looks like you can stream the whole album at this link (Cayetana - Nervous Like Me) or buy the album from their label here.

And if you want to check out Cayetana, here are some links:
