"I hadn't heard Chappo's music prior to them reaching out but I've obviously been missing out as the band's music is d*mn addictive..." - Brooklyn Rocks


Chappo is a NYC electro rock band with a new EP that meshes all sorts of influences, from the playful approach to music reminiscent of Beck to the spacey atmospheres of Air, to occasional funk rock rhythms, hip hop references and noisy distorted guitars. We really like the vocals attitude and the fun approach. Definitely worth checking out their live show at Glasslands on April 23. - The Deli NYC


New York indie space rock duo Chappo send out a pretty clear invitation to rock out and dance when you jumpstart any of the new tracks from their Plastique Universe EP. Think Ghostland Observatory meet The Flaming Lips. You can just hear the lasers and flashing lights and psychedelic atmosphere coming through your headphones. The band will be out of tour this year to support their latest effort, which includes two stops with our recent featured artist No No Knots this Friday in Cincinnati and Saturday in Louisville. Check out the dates, check out an EP promo video, and download a free mp3 for whisked-away jam "Come Home". Other new tracks can be heard over at their MySpace page. Spacey ear candy. If you get a chance, the band are also up for The Deli NYC's Band Of The Month poll, so please vote for them! - The Milk Carton

Review: Chappo Media Machine (Drip Drop Records)

Baton Rouge native Alex Chappo, now residing in New York, is the latest sonic polymath to emerge from our fertile soil. The songs on Media Machine stagger from herky-jerky funk strut “Look and See” to backwoods Credence hollers like “Rattle the Bone” to brittle Neil Young acoustic numbers “Friend” and “Mandy.” It’s an ambitious debut, one that occasionally runs aground when trying to do too many things at once (see the awkward jam band/rap hybrid “Nunchux”). But more often it exhibits confidence, as in the folksy scrapbook “Sal and Betty” and the epic closing number “Don’t Wait.” chappomusic.com

Essential tracks: “Mandy,” “Rattle the Bone,” “Sal and Betty”

Recommended if you like: Lou Reed, CCR, getting around to that Neil Young record you’ve never heard - 225


A swingy blues edge gives this hardworking rock a great feel. - CMJ

Bio

Far Away, deep into the present, there was a large explosion. It was bigger than any bomb the world had ever seen. It shook our entire universe, bent time and changed our perception of everything.

CHAPPO emerged. They set out with a quest for galactic equanimity and came face to face with a silver synth unicorn, a pair of metallic arms and a few doppelgangers. CHAPPO is a cross pollination of indie pop and space rock. It's The Rolling Stones in space and untamed like The Flaming Lips without gravity. They've got space shoes, phantasmagorical adventures, confetti six-shooters and diamond powder-filled hourglasses.

The new CHAPPO EP, 'Sci-fi Bandits' will be released in early 2010.
