A unique rock outfit with a spacey tinge, Asian Man Records' BAGHEERA is a great indie experience. The band tours regionally in support of their first label release, the expertly produced "twelves."

Biography

Nestled among the trees of a sleepy St. Louis neighborhood, strange and exciting sounds began to float into the night air. Starting with softly strummed acoustic guitars and their voices, the new project from Theodore Moll (MU330, Climber) and Heather Dallape (Climber) began to evolve. The volume slowly started to increase with the addition of fuzz tones, live drums, and discordant orchestrations. Mixing their vocal harmonies with layers of interwoven guitar melodies, the late night home recording experiments yielded a collection of haunting rock songs about love, space/time travel, electronic redemption and the fear and optimism of scientific endeavor.

Their live show is a slightly different experience. Unlike the intimacy of listening to recorded music, live music is best raw, somewhat unpredictable, and shared between friend and stranger. Playing shows as a two-piece (drums and electric guitar) and frequently as a four-piece (featuring John (Obie) O’Brien -Bass, and Patrick Turek -Drums) the focus is on energy, volume, and dynamics, forgoing some of the more subtle and fragile aspects of their recordings. The core of interwoven male / female vocals and their unabashed enthusiasm shine through the distortion and brash drumming, recalling the best aspects of punk.

Discography

In 2003 Bagheera teamed up with producer Lance Reynolds (Blue Meanies, Alkaline Trio, MU330) and recorded their debut album “twelves” at his Hyperspace Studio in Springfield, Illinois. In 2004 “twelves” was released on Asian Man Records and has been critically acclaimed by both national and international press.
