THE FRESH PICK OF THE WEEK:

—————————————————————-

This episode’s pick is a band that is currently on tour with Dream Wife who I was incredibly impressed by during their Detroit stop, the Los Angeles-based band Russo. The band is headed by Cailin Russo, who is the daughter of Unwritten Law’s Scott Russo. Along with Cailin Russo, the band, that only formed earlier this year, includes Tyler McCarthy on guitar, Hayley Brownell on drums and backing vocals and Sean Ritchie on bass. The band is pure fun and doesn’t take themselves too seriously with an indie pop/rock sound that is not only energetic, but funky. Russo’s EP, House with a Pool, is available now!
