This year splinter projects have been coming out in droves from the former Red Cortezes, one of the most promising to date from frontman Harley Prechtel-Cortez . The new bedroom project called Halfbluud will release a six-song EP due out January 15. You can hear the songs live, Halfbluud plays tonight (like..now!) at Harvard & Stone, and you can preview the EP until Friday on bandcamp.
Red Cortez by any other name (Just An Animal, The Weather Underground, The Turncoats) disbanded early this year after a long and storied career that included opening for Morrissey, national tours, song placements on TV, playing Bonaroo, and most dear to our suadero-loving hearts, playing the Taco Zone Benefit in 2009.
