Cazadero‘s criminally under-the-radar Dusk to Dawn was one of my favorite albums of 2012 – from anywhere, not just the Bay Area. The album hit a sweet spot where country, folk, and pop from the 70’s meet while still managing to sound fresh and new.

Less than a year after Dusk to Dawn was released, they’re already back with a follow-up LP, Old Friends. The band shared three tracks from the album on their Bandcamp page, where you can also pre-order a vinyl copy that will ship this summer. It sounds like the album will continue with a similar retro vibe, but with more upbeat tempos than Dusk. You can listen to the standout title track from Old Friends below, and be sure to check out Cazadero live at Bottom of the Hill April 15.
