Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.

We know 2016 has really freakin’ sucked so far, but here’s at least one good thing thats come out of it–meet The Mystery Lights! They’ve actually been around for a while, but last month they released their self-titled album and it’s the best thing we’ve heard all year.

With Mike Brandon on guitar and singing lead vocals, LA Solano on lead guitar, Alex Amini on bass, and Kevin Harrison on Farfisa (electronic organ), the group makes up the sweetest, yet wildest sounds you’ll ever hear. Currently on Daptone Records, their vibe is not only soul & blues infused, but is also oozing with those rock’n’roll and punk rock undertones that get the heart pumping and the blood flowing! A sort of concoction of 1920s blues, like Jimmie Rodgers, and NYC 1980’s punk, like Iggy Pop.

So far, their self-titled record is one of BTRtoday’s favorite albums of the year and they’re live shows are a must-see event! Make sure to catch them on their current tour, they’ll be hitting up places all over the U.S.–follow them on all those lovely social media sights to see where they’re headed and what they’re working on next.

They’re a bunch of sweeties who really know how to truly rock and roll. Put on their tunes to let loss or to criticize life, either way, The Mystery Lights have got your back!
