Dos Coyotes

Dos Coyotes

Lips

Not necessarily sounding enough like those bands to earn the insurgent country moniker, yet retaining their own identity, Dos Coyotes are likely to remain as alien to most country fans as they are to alt-country fans. That is a pity, because as this release indicates, they are quite capable of crafting music that explores the borderline between pop, country, and the flourishes of Tex-Mex that occur on the divide between Mexico and America. While this disc only has five tracks on it, it is catchy enough and fun enough to warrant further investigation.
