Show #143 – I See Hawks in LA (3/6/12)

I See Hawks in LA continue the California folk rock that was pioneered by bands like the Byrds, then twisted and re-imagined by visionaries like Gram Parsons.  They’ve just released their fifth album, New Kind of Lonely, which is the band’s first all-acoustic outing.  The record still contains their signature dark humor, sharp picking and tight harmonies, all elements the band has perfected over their decade-long existence.  Icon Fetch talks with lead singer Rob Waller about recording the new disc live, the story behind some of their twisted tales of suicide and overdoses, and the multitude of ways their unique name has been butchered by clubs around the country.
