Somewhere along the river of love plays a band called the Jet Rodriguez.

"Blending airs of headswimming-psychedeila (via syrupy guitar fuzz) with the tumble and twang of Americana — keeping a keen sense for melody and heavy harmonic swoons. In essence, think Detroit’s possible response to the theatrical jangle and soaring, rock-splattered arias of My Morning Jacket."
