Weekly Download | Pickwick, “Hacienda Motel”

by Tarik Moody

This week’s download comes from Seattle’s Pickwick. You have 7 days to download their tune “Hacienda Motel” from their album Can’t Talk Medicine.

Raised on indie rock and a love for lo-fi garage bands, the members of Pickwick found themselves entrenched in underground gospel and blues recordings from the 1950s and 60s as well as popular northern soul artists. This new reference point combined with a renewed appreciation for UK bands like The Animals, Spencer Davis Group, and The Zombies helped the members of Pickwick cultivate their own unique take on garage rock, gospel, and 60s era pop while interpreting those genres through a modern lens.
