The Nashville duo then take a languid journey through the Southwest, weaving spaghetti western whimsy and '70s country dust into their own dramatic indie rock. Mazzy Star's influence shines on psych-tinged "Heart Is Black" and the twangy "Leaving Brooklyn," while desert-rock licks sizzle across "Idiot." By the LP's end, that horn is still blowing and Escondido are still running—harmonizing their way to "a place where everything will be alright."

Five Stars for ‘Walking With A Stranger’!

I discovered Escondido on KCRW after hearing their song “Black Roses” and I’m glad to say I’m loving the new album. Stand out tracks for me are “Try”, “Uh Huh” and “Heart Is Black” but it’s all great.

Escondido is back!

Absolutely loving this album, especially "Apartment"!! Can't wait to see them on tour!
