Jemez Mountain Hawkz: CA-2 (Video-Single, 2012)

CA-2 cover art

En un año en el que Beachwood Sparks han reaparecido tras un largo período de silencio, es lógico que otras bandas como Jemez Mountain Hawkz hagan lo propio y facturen un sonido semejante al de los californianos. Provenientes de Los Angeles y Seattle, mezclan casi por igual la Americana con el Country y el Surf. Y no les queda nada mal. Prometen material para este próximo mes de Octubre. Por lo pronto, nos dejan con este vídeo-single titulado CA-2. No les pierdas de vista porque el disco promete…


“True supergroups are hard to come by, especially in the world of indie rock. This is why Jemez Mountain Hawkz is such a special development; veteran indie players hailing from Los Angeles, Albuquerque, and Seattle have converged and combined their indie pop, country-fringed Americana sounds for Jemez Mountain Hawkz’s debut EP, Hey-Mez, due out October 2nd.
It hasn’t always been sunny, spacious tunes for Dameon Lee Waggoner, former bassist for Southwestern punk luminaries Scared of Chaka and mastermind behind the formation of Jemez Mountain Hawkz. With this new group, Waggoner explores a sonically tender sound alongside acclaimed guitarist Ian Moore, fellow Scared of Chaka cohort and former Shins member Dave HernandezDrew Church of Little Cuts, and drummer Steven Barci.
Their semi-self-titled EP, Hey-Mez, is a journey between the classic sounds of ’60s SoCal and the transcendental nature of the band’s namesake. Dameon grew up around a Tanoan Indian area in New Mexico called Jemez, which the natives roughly define in English as “the place,” replete with mystical undertones. The five-track EP is a delicate mixture of retro pop harmonies and darker melodic hues, evident in songs like “The Long Ride Home” and “California Bound.”
Jemez Mountain Hawkz’s first video is for “CA-2,” which SPIN premiered online today. “The main inspiration for the video is the surf and skateboard culture of Southern California in the 70’s,” says Dameon. “The song is about leaving your job and worries behind and heading out to the beach.” With the help of editor Jensen Rufe, Dameon cut up vintage clips of Super 8 film footage to help capture the carefree innocence that enveloped the CA-2 highway during the Summer of Love” (
