Rod Hamdallah is a young master of shamanic garage rock, punk, noise, and fractured blues. A purveyor of Southern mystery and grit, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist is tearing up stages around the country, armed with a fresh 10-inch vinyl pressing of his 2014 EP, Think About It, out now via Hound Gawd Records.

On Friday, May 24, Hamdallah co-headlines Bubbapalooza alongside Rev. James Leg. Before the show, Hamdallah stopped by CL to talk about absorbing punk rock, the blues, and Arabic music at a young age, his time spent playing guitar with Nashville’s Legendary Shack Shakers, and what he’s up to next. Press play!
