“Londale didn’t name their debut album AM/FM randomly. This sometimes raucous new group, featuring singer/songwriter Willy Collins and guitarist Joshua Lee Hammond, produces the kind of hook-infused riff rock that once blasted from AOR (Album-Oriented Rock) stations and even alternative ones decades ago, equal parts Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, R.E.M., and the Wallflowers.” – No Depression
El Deluxe combines a unique brand of loud, guitar-driven rock with a deep and abiding interest in the pursuit of authenticity. In some ways, they are a throwback to rock’s past, yet they sound perfectly at home in the modern music landscape. Their vintage attitude means valuing sonic credibility over technological perfection.
