Some 20 years too late, “Katydid,” the new single from Missouri’s Cantalouper, would have been an MTV and pop radio staple alongside Nada Surf and Weezer. It’s sad how times have changed.
Getting their start with help from David Bazan, the Columbia quartet’s 2009 debut LP, Mandrakes, was mixed and mastered by Kramer (Mecca Normal, Low). Now, the band is crowdfunding the release of its sophomore album, Reproduction. Recorded in various bedrooms, a shed, a theater, an aquarium, and outdoors, Reproduction will be released on vinyl and digital formats 8 May.
Cantalouper will be hitting the road in April for an acoustic tour with Nashville’s Spoken Nerd. Dates here.
