The Hectors

We've been running this music blog for over two years now, and it's kind of ridiculous that the simple thought of putting up our email address for people to get in touch never occurred to us (check the right sidebar for the bright pink non-link). As a result of making our contact info more readily available, we have been receiving an amazing amount of great new music, and what you have for listening today is a perfectly good example. The Hectors are a four piece including members Robert Bonilla (guitar), Corinne Dinner (voice, guitar), Erik Greene (drums, percussion) and Jim Saunders (bass) from Los Angeles, California. Aside from having one of the longest song titles we've run across in a while, the track featured today offers Corinne's beautifully strong vocals drifting through a steady, gaze-threaded guitar accent that had us listening repeatedly. I Drove All The Way From Bridgeport To Make It With You belongs to the recently released (kinda-late 2007) EP titled Sometimes They Collide which is available through the band's label Tarantism Records. You can listen to more of the latest EP on The Hectors MySpace page and download additional music upon visiting The Hectors website. This is yet another great band that has me reevaluating all of those "cornfed" Midwestern barriers I've had when it comes to appreciating indie music from Southern California.

Ohh... and before I forget, the next live performance will take place February 21 at local L.A. venue Spaceland.
