Pop’s Rod and Custom Rockin' New Mexico Since 2008!
Perfectly blending old time Rock riffs with a hint of Country and Blues, Pop’s Rod and Custom is pure southwest indie.
Described by the critics as ZZ Top meets Pearl Jam, the band has created a fusion of Folk, Blues, and Rock covering a variety of subject matter. With songs about everything from global warming to spicy food, the variety of genres as well as topics makes them a dynamic group that appeals to a broad range of audiences. Having released their first video titled ‘Hot Green Chile’ on YouTube, the band is currently working on promoting their media through various forms of mediums and branching out from the Las Cruces area. Their music has been featured on Vancouver and UK radio stations as well as in the Midwest.
Recorded with Scoughton Productions, their second album Cold Winter Stories was recorded using Pro Tools and have been able to create a fuller and cleaner sound. Drum tracks are initially used to keep time and are then later replaced by unique beats from the drummer. The upcoming summer will hold many gigs for the band around the New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado area. They hope that their new release titled "2012" will drop in late 2010 or early 2011. Their album Cold Winter Stories is currently available online, along with T-shirts and other merchandise.
Blending some of the most unique and classic styles in the indie rock scene, Pop’s Rod and Custom is using their own approach to music. Combining hard work, good musicianship, and a strong work ethic, the band hopes to break out of the southwest and make an impact on listeners far and wide. Gaining popularity around the country as well as gaining some international exposure, Pop’s Rod and Custom is well on their way to establishing themselves as a mature Rock outfit.
