Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Sun Rising” by The Wanton Bishops.

The Wanton Bishops is a new band I’ve recently discovered while stuck at home with plenty of free time. They’re from Beirut, Lebanon and they’ve been around since 2011. Formed by Nader Mansour (vocals) and Eddy Ghossein (guitar), the two man band is regarded as one of the leading bands in the Middle East. They met outside the Bar Louie when Mansour tried to help Eddy out in a fist fight. Eddy paid back the favor by bailing Mansour out after another fight, and they’ve been making bluesy rock music ever since.

Right now they’ve got one album and two EP’s. “Sun Rising” is on their 2012 album Sleep with the Lights On. It’s definitely worth checking out.
