Local Picks: Dolores has got the groove

Dolores

Dolores is a new Madison band who have just put out a very good debut EP called Nectar Fields. It's been riding high at the top of Bandcamp's Madison tagged releases for popularity and one listen will tell you why. From the soulful pop of Hustle to the no holds barred Fight Fire With Fire, the foursome exhibit a high caliber of musicianship and some real promise for a bright future.

Dolores has done a handful of basement shows and are slated for an early High Noon Saloon gig on Monday. So give Dolores Nectar Fields a listen and check them out live to see if you agree. We had a chance to send some questions the band’s way and bassist, keyboardist and producer Adam Thein responded.
