TIme for that old time rock n' roll, just like you used to know. Ok, maybe you've never really heard someone create a track like this before, but for Hector's Pets latest single 'Tearin' Up The Pantry,' the group has taken a cue from classic Woodstock-era band Canned Heat, and given the original country rock track a thorough makeover, remaking the baby boomer anthem as a millenial jam perfect for accompanying that 6-pack you've been hiding in your cooler all winter.
For a band made up entirely of... pets (no seriously, the lead singer goes by Wet Pet, the drummer's name is Teacher's Pet, and .... ok, you get the idea), this band operates by a simple mission: it's one thing to be retro, it's quite another to make it sound new again. For Hector's Pets, this group is right on time. Check out 'Tearin' Up The Pantry' below, and if you are going to be at SXSW, see here for their schedule. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
