Weekly Special #184b: Spanish Prisoners

Led by vocalist Leo Maymind, Spanish Prisoners blend bubbly psych pop with dark telltale vocals and daydream guitar textures. Recently the band has played shows with the likes of Daniel Johnston, John Vanderslice and Foals. Shortly after their debut Spanish Prisoners expanded with keyboardist Amberly Hungerford, who also contributes with vocals adding even more diversity. They have recently released the “Los Angeles Guitar Dream” EP to a mass of good press, followed by a 7”, with remixes by RAC and Blind Man’s Color. In July they played a residency at the Cameo Gallery sponsored by The Deli and The Music Slut. – Read Stacy Surface interview with the band here.
