God Bless You Amigo is the new release from The Felice Brothers featuring a collection of home recordings made in the spring of 2012. What turned out to be a run of bad luck and misfortune from nearly having their house destroyed by a hurricane, hospitalization and dying amplifiers. The craziness of their situation prompted eventually culminated in, with a little persuasion, 8 traditional folk songs and 12 original songs that they’ve always liked, but never had a chance to put on records.
The proceeds will go towards fixing their plight, it’s only a $5 download, but you can give more if you are feeling philanthropic. The band will be over in the UK in December at Shepherds Bush Empire.
We will be featuring tracks from the album in our FRUK playlist from next week!
