“Listen In“ is a weekly feature in which we ask musicians to curate a mixtape-length YouTube playlist of songs they’re currently digging. Click the big play button above to hear the whole playlist or scroll down to see and hear individual tracks.
Hector’s Pets is a throwbacks, but it’s hard to say exactly to when. An amalgam of rock music from the 60’s through 90’s, the one thing we know for sure about the band’s sound is that it’s damn catchy. They put together a playlist for you of deep cuts like “Funky Man,” a relic of Dee Dee Ramone’s regrettable rap career, “(Get The) REVVUP” by rising garage poppers Nancy and a song called “I Want To Fuck Your Dog” by little known German 70’s punk band Ebba Grön. Put this one while drunkenly doing the twist at a backyard party while the summer’s still with us.
Hector’s Pets album Pet-O-Feelia is out now, and available for purchase here.
