Song of the Day: Hermanos Gutiérrez – Thunderbird
Zurich-based duo Hermanos Gutiérrez released a new single Thunderbird, from the band's brand new brilliant album El Bueno Y El Malo.
Hermanos Gutiérrez (consisting of guitarists and actual brothers Estevan and Alejandro), whose albums consist almost entirely of instrumental, heavily reverbed guitars creating that kind of film soundtrack-esque atmosphere and vibe. Taking influence from 1950's Latin America Sound they transfer the listeners to journeys through beautiful landscapes.
The album was produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and released on his Easy Eye Sound label. The title of this, their fourth album is a nod to Sergio Leone’s legendary 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and its beautiful score, made by great Ennio Morricone.
Estevan Gutiérrez describes the feeling of the music as: When Alejandro and I play together, it’s like we are taking a road trip. Sometimes we’re driving through a desert. Sometimes we’re traveling up the coast. But always we are in nature, and we see the most beautiful landscapes, sunrises, sunsets.

The title of the album is, of course, a reference to Sergio Leone’s legendary 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and especially its score by Ennio Morricone. But the phrase has a deeper meaning: We think that everybody has a good side and a bad side, says Estevan. “It’s every person, every moment and every situation. Everybody has these two faces. It’s not a cynical idea, but one that celebrates the depths and dualities of humanity, and music—even music that does not include vocals or lyrics—is the perfect vehicle to explore such big ideas.
