You know that one weird uncle you have out in the middle of nowhere? The one that runs the snake farm? Most of the time it's kind of a hassle going all the way out there, but driving out in the Mojave with him is always cool as shit when you get on the road. That's what Hanni El Khatib sounds like. Hanni El Khatib is a songwriter from Los Angeles and that plays some good ol' fashioned crunchy garage rock. His new track "The Teeth," off of his upcoming album Moonlight sounds like a trek through some kind of desert in the back of a jeep at midnight. The song opens up chugging and clapping down a bumpy road, with Hanni's laidback vocals giving the track a nice cool wrap around its hot guitar works. It gets to the point where at the end, he busts out a fucking guitar solo that manages to not sound cheesy as shit, and instead give the song a logical and fitting conclusion: soaring to the hot skies on wings made of rock.

Check out the track below, look out for Moonlight coming (X) and catch him on tour:
