The Exbats - "I Got the Hots for Charlie Watts"

We were huge fans of father/daughter duo The Exbats's 2019 album E Is for Exbats. In fact, it came incredibly close to making my top ten of last year. I was thrilled to hear that we were already getting new music from them. "I Got the Hots for Charlie Watts" (in case that sounds familiar, it's the same name as their 2018 album) is about having the hots for Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts. The song i much more restrained than anything we've heard before. It's almost a regular love ballad and teeters dangerously close to folk territory. Of course, this is still The Exbats, so "I Got the Hots for Charlie Watts" is as much fun as you expect it to be. It makes sense that the music of The Exbats would age along with singer Inez Mclain, and we're dying to hear the rest of the album.

You can watch the video for "I Got the Hots for Charlie Watts" below. Kicks, Hits and Fits, the upcoming album from The Exbats, will be out March 13 on Burger Records. For more on The Exbats, check them out on Bandcamp and Instagram.


  1. Thank You soooo much for listening. We totally wrestled with this song. Completely agree about the dangerous veering into the folky lane. Turns out it's the new album closer, and not an indicative of what comes before. That said, the new album is a little different, but not like this, it's really poppy in a way that reminds us of The Hollies or The Monkees, but still US. Very upbeat and catchy. I'm pretty darn confident yr gonna be tapping yr toes. 2 more videos and a radio type single to come in the next few weeks. Comes out March 6. Thanks again. -kenny and inez
