CHAPPO is pleased to announce a headline coast to coast tour of the United States this April. They are fresh off a busy 2012, which saw the release of their debut album Moonwater on Majordomo Records. They toured alongside indie luminaries Of Montreal, and played major festivals including Bonnaroo, Osheaga, Summerfest and Bunbury. Moonwater received notable praise from Pitchfork, “an excellently overstuffed garage-psych sound.” SPIN noted “nods to classic indie (Pixies, a dash of Grandaddy); with just enough psych-swirls to stay groovy.” “Come Home” maintained a spot on Sirius XM – Alt Nation’s top 18 for over 20 weeks.

The band recently released their new covers EP, Nothin’ To Sell You, reinterpreting songs by Jefferson Airplane, Beck, Kenny Rogers, and Caveman. The EP comes with a limited edition poster of original artwork by lead singer Alex Chappo. The illustration includes references to 5 famous paintings (try to guess which ones.)

Video: CHAPPO – “What Are You Kids On?”

Brooklyn four-piece CHAPPO, whose debut album Moonwater is out now on Majordomo/Shout!Factory,  premiered the animated music video for their psychedelic-pop track “What Are You Kids On” yesterday via FilterMagazine.com. The video was created and directed by Kate Stryker and Lucas Millard of Bottomless Well Production.

Lead singer and guitarist Alex Chappo explains, “We worked with Lucus and Kate for our video for “Bodies Coasting” and we fell in love with their style. This song has a similar whimsical feeling. We wanted to use animation because the song surfs somewhere between the alpha waves of a dream and an exaggerated reality.”
