The Bloodhounds - 'Try a Little Reefer'

Following in the footsteps of Cheech Marin, East Los Angeles Latino rockers the Bloodhounds kick off their debut album Let Loose with the weed-centric track, "Try a Little Reefer."

About the song, Bloodhounds' frontman Aaron Piedraita tells CelebStoner: "We have this friend that we're always telling to try a little reefer, 'cause he's always so stressed. His response is always, 'No, it's for losers!' And so whenever he would pass out from drinking we'd blow smoke in his face and he'd always be smiling while he was asleep. We would always tease him afterwards and say 'C'mon dawg, try a little reefer!'"

The band has a Stones-y retro sound drenched in Farfisa organ and harmonica. Catch them at numerous shows around Los Angeles throughout the month, including Oct. 10 at Loaded and Oct. 11 at The Grand Star. Let Loose comes out on Nov. 4.
