    Los Angeles rock band Canto have released their brand new EP Ride Away. The EP is available as a free download via the band's official Facebook page.

    Free music is good. Free, good music is better.

    Fans can also listen to the entire EP streaming through the band's YouTube channel, as well. The EP includes "Dirty Water," Canto's interpretation of the 1966 garage band classic by another California rock band, The Standells.

    The band is a family affair consisting of three brothers, Seamus Blackwell (Vocals, Guitar), Aidan Blackwell (Bass), and David Blackwell (Drums) who have been heavily involved in music all their lives. Lead singer Seamus says, "I was surrounded by musicians growing up and because of it, I wanted to play any instrument I could get my hands on."

    That fact is apparent right down to the name of the band, which is the Latin word for "to sing." The brothers showcase their love for the classics with influences from rock music of the 1960s and 1970s combined with the energy of a mature and operatic alt-rock sound.

    The EP stream is below:
