San Antonio-based quartet Hacienda recently released their single "Savage" to build excitement for their forthcoming Dan Auerbach-produced album, which is set for a spring 2012 release. Bassist Rene Villanueva explains that the upbeat, groove-filled track was written easily in the studio. "'Savage' was written really quickly, it was an idea that developed sonically as we recorded it. I didn't know how it would turn out but it just feels really good," Villanueva explains. "Lyrically, it's connected to a lot of what Hacienda is about, but ultimately it's about the groove."

Hacienda's "Savage" is available now, but you can download it for free here.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
