“This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco!”
The Go Rounds will be performing a set of original material to kick this party off, before bringing out Heavy Color to add a modern afro-beat/psychedelic punctuation to the “Burning Down the Brewhouse” – Talking Heads dance party set!
The Go Rounds:
The Go Rounds have used Psychedelic Americana Pop, Twang-Rock & Jelly-Roll, and ‘bits of all your favorite bands exploded into rock n roll confetti’ to describe the sprawling landscape that is their sound. Fingerpicked hollow body guitar makes space for slashing fuzz tones as down tempo, introspective ambiance opens into synth-led dance pop. Spellbinding vocals weave lush textures through a field of deconstructed genres – a variegated sonic voyage – changing and returning like the seasons, flourishing and weathering the Beauty and the Fury. The result is an experience that is at once accessible, engaging, evocative and surprising– the comfort of a sedan and the exhilaration of driving fast on a loose gravel road.
HEAVY COLOR is a future beat / psych jazz / hybrid-electronic ensemble that blends traditional music from around the globe with modern afro-beat and psychedelic pop music.
In May of 2015 Ben travelled to the Eastern borders the Democratic Republic of Congo to collaborate on a forthcoming album with local musicians in support of the NDARO Cultural center in Bukavu (a safe center for youth to learn music, dance and art) and the ongoing efforts of ON THE GROUND an NGO focusing on gender equity and sustainable community development in farming regions around the globe. Their last album “Arise Ye Spiritual Machine” was an exploration in re-contextualizing obscure bits of archival music into a modern beat-tape format. On the forthcoming Soft Light and River Passage, they have further deepened their connection to live performance and composition to create a their own world to deconstruct and re-form.
