Crooks on Tape Bring Fingerprint Album To Life

Crooks on Tape

When John Schmersal moved to LA, he and former Enon bandmate Rick Lee began to play music with Joey Galvan, and the idea was simply to record everything in the moment.  Those sessions would later be pieced together to form Fingerprint, the debut album from Crooks on Tape.  Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt spoke with Schmersal about making the album and then adapting that material into something the band could perform on the road.

Crooks on Tape will perform on January 30th at Rockstar Pro Arena with Swimdiver, Swarm and Bearer of Bad News.

Elia Goat and the Natural Horns Live on Kaleidoscope

Elia Goat

When Elia Goat began arranging material for a solo album, he decided to take a different approach to instrumentation.  Instead of stringed instruments traditionally used in folk and country, Goat wrote horn parts for his songs and began gathering players.  The result is Elia Goat and the Natural Horns and their album, Acorns.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope and talked to host Juliet Fromholt about writing, recording and finding a sound all their own.
