LA Weekly Article!

Red Cortez at the Satellite

Whether as Spaceland or, now, the Satellite, a monthlong Monday residency at this low-slung Silver Lake stalwart is a badge of honor to local indie bands' recognition of a following that extends well beyond first-name terms and a repertoire that transcends simply the same set played four times. Having filled frequent support slots at similar repeat engagements over the past couple of years, while touring with everyone from Morrissey to Airborne Toxic Event, Red Cortez more than meet the criteria for the former, and as if to underline the latter they'll be releasing a free EP to coincide with each of these Satellite transmissions (albeit of mostly demo recordings, apparently). The foursome's dressed-down demeanor belies their onstage zeal, with singer-guitarist-keysman Harley Prechtel-Cortez, in particular, emoting every nuance of their all-embracing, soulful blues-punk with wry, arena-ready belief. Sure, the guy likes himself, but that comes with the territory, and the strength of his melodies — which feed off rather than succumb to RC's nervy fervor — forgives the histrionics. However anthemic they get (and we're talking War-like U2 sing-along-ability at times), Red Cortez remain sufficiently organic and stylistically liberated to keep us coming back well beyond this February four-peat. (Paul Rogers)
