Milwaukee-based indie rock pioneers Big Mother Gig have released a music video for "Alvarado" as part of their massive comeback. The band will soon be releasing a new EP titled Almost Primed which will mark their first new release in over twenty long years. The song follows a trendy young man wandering around the intersection of Alvarado and Sunset in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles; which holds true to the sort of individual and culture that inspired the song in the first place. There is footage of the three studios in which the band recorded their new EP. These studios reside in Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Subang Jaya, Malaysia where guitar player Riz Rashid happens to now reside.
“Alvarado” is a punchy, punk-tinged indie rock banger with flippant social commentary infused in the lyrics and a huge hook that makes the song accessible in spite of it’s outsider message.
