Independent melodic atmospheric rock from Middle America
Cantalouper started when David Bazan (Pedro the Lion/Headphones/Overseas) helped complete their first EP at his hone studio, after hearing a tape of four track recordings handed to him at a Pedro the Lion show. Cantalouper's first full-length album, "Mandrakes", was mixed and mastered by Kramer, who has produced records for bands like Low and Galaxie 500. Aside from nineties indie rock, Cantalouper's work references shoegaze and new wave music the most. They have toured regularly for the past five years throughout middle America. Cantalouper's second LP, "Reproduction", was recorded in various bedrooms, a shed, a theater, an aquarium, and outdoors around the band's hometown of Columbia, MO. It will be released on vinyl and as a download May 8, 2015.
