The band’s sound, though, is decidedly American. Caught halfway between Duane Allman’s Telecaster twang, the Dead’s hazy harmonies and the stoned swoon of California’s folk-rock heyday, Cordovas wring new life from older influences, hoisting their freak flag high on their upcoming album, That Santa Fe Channel.”    The band have three upcoming shows in Iowa this week.   Mark Skaar, in this exclusive interview with Firstman find out more about what makes this band tick.
