Hacienda was formed by cousins Abraham Villanueva (piano/vocals) and Dante Schwebel (guitar/vocals) together with Abraham's brothers Jaime (drums/vocals) and Rene Villanueva (bass/vocals). To date, the south Texas quartet has released two albums to widespread acclaim. Of 2008's Loud Is The Night, Paste Magazineheralds, "…spine-tingling vocals, frank lyrics, organ rolls that seem to start high in the dusty hills and bass-lines that beat like the heart of a forgotten America…," while Popmatters calls 2010's Big Red & Barbacoa, "…a dizzying, winning recipe…" Hacienda's forthcoming Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) produced album, Shakedown, will be released June 19th, 2012 on Collective Sounds. The first single, "Savage", which RollingStone.com calls, an "…upbeat, groove-filled track…," is available now.
