L.A.’s rock ‘n’ roll purist is leaving the garage.
You remember Hanni El Khatib, the L.A. garage rock rebel behind stylized and visceral tracks like “Family” and “You Rascal You.”

He’s back with a new album, Moonlight, that promises to take his stripped-down, vintage rock ‘n’ roll in adventurous new directions. Listen to the title track and lead single below — a psychedelic, loop-heavy number built over an ominous guitar break.
El-Khatib says the track is equal parts RZA, Iggy Pop, and Tom Waits and, honestly, we have to agree.
Moonlight is out Jan. 20, 2015. Pre-order it here.
