DAWES - "Time Spent in Los Angeles" - Modern band with a Vintage Sound

I am late to the party on these guys (especially since they are local to my area) but a guy just turned me on to DAWES and I wanted to let my readers know about them. 

They have a great sound, excellent vocal harmonies, quality lyrics, and a general style reminiscent of early Neil Young, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, and The Band with a little Black Keys and Rolling Stones circa Exile on Main Street thrown in. Singer-guitarist Taylor Goldsmith delivers some tasty licks on his Telecasters.  I don't know if he is playing a vintage or Custom Shop Tele in the video but I like that SF Princeton Reverb in the background.

Check them out on Youtube when you get a chance and you'll see more of the same high quality songs. - JC

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL READERS

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
