New music from Kalamazoo's psychedelic genre crossers
The Go Rounds are bits of all your favorite bands exploded into rock n' roll confetti. Their unique brand of Psychedelic Americana Pop crosses, blends, and deconstructs genres from indie to country to art-rock and baroque folk, creating an accessible and engaging experience that will leave you telling your friends. The songs are catchy, twangy, and trippy, led by Graham Parsons' spellbinding vocals, which weave through lush sonic textures and the band’s master class of intricate arrangements. The Kalamazoo quartet has released four LPs and four EPs, and playing countless Great Lakes music festivals. Their album "Don't Go Not Changin'" made several year-end best lists and earned them 3 WYCE Jammy awards, including the Special Jury Prize of album of the year. They come to The Ark with a new album, "Whatever You May Be."
Scuttlebuggs is an indie folk-rock band from the Midwest. Their original vocal melodies, harmonies, and lyrics are the focal point of their sound. Inspired equally by the origins of rock and roll, folk, country, and doo-wop, the duo offers modern perspective to classic genres; people have likened their music to Neil Young, Nick Cave, and Simon and Garfunkel.
