: Song Premiere: Andy Frasco & The U.N. “Tie You Up”

On February 26, 2016, Ruf Records will release Happy Bastards the fourth record from Andy Frasco & The U.N.   The album title reflects the band's general attitude as Frasco explains, “I’m trying to bring a different interpretation of what people think the blues is. Not all blues need to be sad and lonesome. I love acts like Wilson Pickett, Marvin Gaye, Buddy Guy, The Band, Samantha Fish, Houndmouth – all those acts made or make the blues their own style.” Rick Parker and John Avila produced Happy Bastards which the band recorded at Lavish Studios and Brando’s Paradise, California and the results reflect the group's mix of  funk, soul, rock and party blues. Today we premiere the first track from the forthcoming release, "Tie You Up."
