For those lucky enough to have been present for a live show, Hanni El Khatib is an act that needs no introduction. But for the uninitiated, all you need to know is that Khatib makes rough-and-tumble bar-rock naturally designed to go down well with a beer and a shot.
The most recent HEK album was this year’s blues-rumbler Moonlight, but during his episode of the current season of DIRECTV’s Guitar Center Sessions, he and his live group headed back to 2013’s Head in the Dirt to play the sophomore effort’s sultry title track, which you can check out below. Fuzzed-out bass lines and shimmering synth melodies galore.
Moonlight is out now via Innovative Leisure, and you can catch the full episode of Hanni El Khatib performing on “Guitar Center Sessions” this Friday, June 12, on DIRECTV’s Audience Network.
