"Wild, Wild, Mordecai"

Local indie pop/rock quartet Go Mordecai! would like you to know something: “We are very excited about the upcoming show at Zanzabar with Cloud Nothings and The Deloreans (on March 21). It is guaranteed to be a wild time. (We are legally obligated to disclose that Go Mordecai! cannot guarantee that the time will be ‘wild.’)”

LEO spoke with the members about their recent EP, Baseball Weather, the movie that inspired their name (it was “The Royal Tenenbaums”), and other things that are things.

LEO: How do you feel about baseball and/or weather?

Zach Driscoll: Well, the seasons are pretty important ... and the weather changes as we enter different seasons ... and the weather dictates whether we’re going to play baseball or not ... Does that answer the question?

LEO: How do you feel about pog?

Kyle Mann: Some fads capture the imagination of America’s youth, swell to unseen heights of popularity, and weave themselves into popular culture for the future. That’s how we feel about Trapper Keepers. Pogs were cool, too, we guess.

LEO: Why isn’t Louisville more of an indie pop/rock town?

Dash Moss: That’s a good question. There really are plenty of great indie rock groups in Louisville. If we had to guess why it isn’t as prominent around here, it’s probably because not enough people have seen Loren Pilcher (of The Deloreans) play guitar with an awesome mustache. (Loren has the mustache ... not the guitar.)

LEO: Your name comes from an influential movie. How does it suit you?

Lance Swan: A band name is more of a “brand name.” Our integrity and ability is sketchy at best, that’s why we have borrowed some of Wes Anderson’s.

Debut "Baseball Weather" released in October 2011. The "EP" was recorded by Go Mordecai, with mixing done by Trip Barriger and mastering by Carl Saff in Chicago, IL. A track from "Baseball Weather" was featured on WFPK's independent music spotlight and the track was also featured on Louisville's 93.1. Upon release of the EP, Go Mordecai also performed acoustic versions of music from "Baseball Weather" on WKEE in Huntington, West Virginia.



Formed in 2009, Go Mordecai is a fresh new sound in the Louisville music scene. Their unique blend of modern electronic pop and ambient is unlike any other artists in Louisville or nationwide. Their first single, Uncertainty, was featured on WFPK's independent music spotlight. After releasing their debut EP "Baseball Weather", Go Mordecai also recorded live, in-studio, acoustic performances for WKEE in Huntington, West Virginia. Go Mordecai was recently booked to open for The Deloreans and Cloud Nothings (given the title of "Best New Music" by Pitchfork).
Demand for a debut album began as soon as Go Mordecai started playing in Louisville and Lexington, KY, in late 2009. While playing numerous shows in Louisville and all across Kentucky, Go Mordecai completed their debut EP "Baseball Weather" after two years of recording and the album was released in October 2011. The EP was fully recorded by the members of GM and mixed by Trip Barriger in Louisville. Mastering was completed by Carl Saff in Chicago, IL. Many recordings were scrapped along the way, as GM ensured that their debut album was held to the high standards that the band has created for their music.
Go Mordecai is currently working on their first full-length album, to be released in mid-late 2012. The album will feature all-new music from Go Mordecai. Go Mordecai will be tracking the album themselves, as they did "Baseball Weather." For their debut full-length, however, they will be working with Jeremy Perry, of Louisville's The Deloreans, who will be working as a producer/consultant for the album.
The recordings and live shows currently being created by GM is sure to become one of the highlights of the Louisville music scene and beyond.
