Rudy De Anda recently released an eclectic blend of genres and charming songs with his debut solo EP Ostranenie on Porch Party Records.

In addition to being the frontman of the Long Beach band Wild Pack of Canaries, De Anda is also a member of the L.A. based artist collective Qvole Collective. The Qvole Collective was created to produce and celebrate progressive Latino music and also includes Chicano Batman and Cutty Flam.

De Anda’s first solo effort Ostranie began with recording sessions in the living room of the late Isaiah “Ikey” Owens during breaks on his Jack White tour schedule.  After months of recording and arranging on their own, De Anda and Owens mixed the songs at The Compound Studio with Anthony “Antoine” Arvizu. The final product is a collaborative representation of musical kinships, cultural diversity, and De Anda’s anything goes style. 

Watch the official video for ‘The Fast Route, the Fast Decline’ here:

De Anda is currently touring to support his solo debut with musical support from Zach Mabry (Forest Of Tongue), bassist Lily Stretz (Meow Twins), and multi-instrumentalist J.P. Bendziniski (Crystal Antlers, De Lux).

Check out the collectible translucent gold 12″ vinyl or classic black 12″ vinyl, and unlimited streaming of Ostranenie via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more on the Porch Party Records Bandcamp store:
