CHAPPO is a Brooklyn-based psych-rock band. With their new John Vanderslice-produced record, the group covers tricky emotional and musical ground while maintaining their joyous stride. Lead singer Alex Chappo is a force to be reckoned with and surely an apt pairing for the mania of Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips — CHAPPO’s tourmates this year. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to give us a somewhat contained taste of what they’ve got going on.
Do It by CHAPPO is available now from Votiv Music.
