In 2008 EvilMrSod, a Spanish singer and guitarist based in Berlin, and the Spanish rock band Keiko found each other for their debut "Sunday" - the result was a mixture of country and blues garnished with folk influences. Five years later they are coming around the corner with their second album, which was released in 2012 on Tenerife and is rockier than the first album. It was financed by Internet donations (crowdfunding), to which the young label had called Singalongsongs. The result is well worth listening to: EvilMrSod and Keiko are working many fields (on "Queen In My Head" even the Stones greet), but they don't hide in a style drawer. They can also afford to present the title "Ghost Train" twice - first bluesy-rocky, then in a shortened delta blues version that gets under your skin. Tip: On evilmrsod.de you can download the EP "Skeletal" for free. The title song is also represented on the album. In addition there are five cover songs, among others by The Beatles, The Stones and Neil Young.
