Listen In: Banditas Made You a Playlist

May 7, 2013 | Andy Cush

Listen In” is a weekly feature in which we ask musicians to curate a mixtape-length YouTube playlist of songs they’re currently digging.

This week’s playlist comes from our friends in the Boston garage trio Banditas, whose 2012 release Save the Rats I’d recommend to any fans of boozey, bluesy rock and roll. The mix, curated by bandleader Hayley Thompson-King, reflects that lineage, with old-time pop, rock, and country courtesy of Waylon Jennings, George Thorogood, Stevie Wonder, and the like. Click the big play button above to hear the whole playlist, and scroll down to see and play individual songs.
