In New Orleans, music wafts through the windows night and day. From the sidesticking second lines to the croons of the troubadours on Royal Street, Motel Radio draws inspiration from the sounds of their home city while adding their own indie flair to the pot.
The group spent the past year writing and recording their debut full-length Siesta Del Sol with producer, engineer, and neighbor Eric Heigle. They split time between Heigle’s studio (Wix Mix Productions) and their own home studio a block away to produce the dynamic 10 song LP, which released in July of 2019. The record will be accompanied by a five week summer tour supporting Austin-based indie band Summer Salt.
