Tortuga Tunes: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are very clever in deciding their name, whether you love it or you hate it, it captures ones interests and intrigues them to discover more about this oh so simple yet strange band. Not only is their name captivating but as is their music. Such swift melodies and natural guitar riffs, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. has covered God Only Knows by The Beach Boys and have been recording new material lately. With the release of Horse Power EP last summer, the band has been able to trek across the country on tour, even stopping by our very own Austin City Limits. If you did not plan on seeing them at the festival you may want to reconsider after hearing these tracks. The single Morning Thought has the feel as if you traveling down a stream of endless fantasies, to the left you see a concrete zoo filled with high energy apes bouncing around outside of their cages, while on the right you picture a innocent hummingbird gallantly flying from flower to flower free from the savages that live across the river.
