It started as some drawings by a five year old boy but was later put away and that was that. Some years later it became a story that inspired an idea for a song. The song was not good but eventually it was worked out to more songs recorded on a four track player. Those were reworked and then put with some new songs. These songs were much better but not ready to be anymore than demos. The next bunch of songs became an EP and a full length. These are the keepers.
Cantalouper is a band from the midwest and as such their sound reflects that. But there is more to it than that. They seem to care a lot for Flannery O'Connor, the only way a name like Cantalouper could exist. Their love for reverb and big sounds with both acoustic and electric guitars is very apparent. The band states they believe in the "DIY" way of making music, still recording on four track from time to time. They have been booking more and more shows and appear anxious to tour. They had the honor of having David Bazan and T.W. Walsh work on their first EP and Kramer work on their first LP. Go to their site and tell them what you think.
