Chappo (Brooklyn, NY)

Official Link:



"An excellently overstuffed garage-psych sound." - Pitchfork

"So long as bands like Chappo exist, there is hope for music. Listen to this little slice of summery goodness called Come Home, the psych-garage anthem of 2010, then kick back and enjoy life" - Almost Gold Records

"The spirit of the Flaming Lips combined with the... the... What did Elton John have in the 70's that he doesn't have now?... Swagger? Balls? Whatever that thing is that allows me to link The Flaming Lips to Elton John... Chappo has it." - What I Heard Today

"CHAPPO has been an office favorite around these parts since 'Come Home' popped into our collective hard drives, and for good reason, it's beyond hooky. It's a duo and their vocal style and musical direction is as funky as it gets." - Future Sounds

"Damn addictive." - Brooklyn Rocks

"Eno vs. Flaming Lips kind of flavor." - 37 Flood

"You can just hear the lasers and flashing lights and psychedelic atmosphere coming through your headphones...Spacey ear candy" - The Milk Carton
