Thursdays (and Tuesdays) will spell new videos and new music from five-piece electro-rock outfit Papadosio for the next couple of weeks. The band nestled up in a cabin in the Appalachian mountains to record live versions of its new material in HD and up-close, so you can truly see the proficiency and chops each member of the band displays.
Today's tune is a departure from Tuesday's "New Love," which featured a lot more electronic sound. This predominantly acoustic tune could have been on Cat Stevens' 1974 masterpiece, Buddha and the Chocolate Box, as it seamlessly integrates acoustic guitars with winding prog sections that feel more like movements in a suite.
Splitting the Brouse boys between guitar and keys, and putting Anthony Thogmartin on acoustic, as well, gives the band more options, lets them stretch their vocal talents and really play with melodies and counterpoints. "The Elephant I Presume" could go harder on stage, we presume, but again, with that kind of musical muscle, they can do whatever they hell they want.
Forthcoming for Papadosio, in addition to more videos from the cabin in the woods, is a much-anticipated Red Rocks date with Lotus and Orchard Lounge in Morrison, CO on September 19th. A few more festival dates, including Resonance in Pataskala, OH with Phutureprimitive, Desert Dwellers, and more rolls right into the Imaginal Cells tour.
