Ola Podrida started out as the recording project of film composer David Wingo (releasing the self-titled debut on Plug Research in 2007 and BELLY OF THE LION on Western Vinyl in 2009) but upon moving to NYC in 2006 it became a live band comprised of four of his oldest friends from back home in Texas. While in NYC they shared the stage with such bands as Fleet Foxes, Beach House, She & Him, and Blitzen Trapper, and in 2008 they performed at the Explosions In The Sky curated All Tomorrow's Parties Festival in Minehead UK in 2008. Wingo moved back to Austin in 2009 and Ola Podrida has now morphed into a fully collaborative four-piece band with Matt Clark, David Hobizal and Colin Swietek filling out the lineup. Ola Podrida's sound initially grew out of Wingo's dreamy, folk-inflected songwriting but through the years has slowly morphed into something that's bigger yet more stripped down while still maintaining the same subtlety of craft and composition that was established on the self-titled debut album. The band is currently working on material for a new album.
