stream | the memories | en espanol

we featured the memories a couple years back, long enough to where it's not worth linking because the formatting has changed rather drastically between now and then. since that time we've had the privilege of hanging out with the guys from the memories and with the the recent release of their second full-length love is the law, it only seemed appropriate to show them some love. the night we spent with the boys was as memorable as any night with your favorite kind, boozed, baked and lighthearted derelicts tends to be—with the addition of some wonderfully choreographed wrestling matches illuminated by trash-fueled firelight as a proverbial cherry on top. their label, burger records, actually sums up the buds and their music quite accurately:

...but most importantly, it’s honest. there’s not a lie to be found in these songs. these songs are the memories.

“all the songs came naturally,” says rikky gage (vocals, rhythm guitar). “kyle [handley] would write the music and i'd write the words. all the lyrics are about things that we know or do,” he says. “all the songs are written from the stuff i got laying around in my memories, fresh and old,” explains gage. band name mystery solved!

stream the first, catchy-as-fuck single "en espanol" above and support the boys via their modest and appropriately ornamented bandcamp.
