texas pandaa is full of smiles

June 7, 2010

The pandaas uploaded an intimate behind the scenes look at “Old Time” on YouTube.    The song is from their 2007 album Days, which you can buy here.  It’s nice to see a band joke around and actually smile when they’re playing.  If only all recording sessions were this blissful.

Can’t get enough of texas pandaa?  Their new album Down In The Hole was just released.  You can hear three new songs on their myspace and order it at Yes Asia.  Or you can wait and buy it internationally from n5MD or Denovali.   My name is supposed to be printed in that booklet so I have to get it one way or the other!
