Campdogzz new album, In Rounds, is centered around driving rhythms, insistent dual guitars set in intriguing arrangements, and the haunting, evocative voice of Price. Her melodies take on the shape of a storm making its way in -- and out just as soon. There’s a feeling of electricity, of winds shifting, a magical mix of both comfort and unease. The album was written partially in Chicago but mostly throughout the Southwest as Price and guitarist/vocalist Mike Russell traveled post-tour. Engulfed by desert, this starkness -- like the mercurial storms of Price’s native Oklahoma -- couldn’t help but seep into the songs. It was a period of collective change for the band as relationships began and ended, people moved and planted new roots. Everyone experienced some sort of massive life shift and the album serves as a reflection of that period, of growth and patience.
The Chicago-based Campdogzz head back out for a run of dates beginning July 18th in Spring Green, WI. The band will then tour in support of In Rounds in August, playing Grand Rapids, MI, on the 2nd and making their way throughout the east coast and midwest before wrapping up on the 11th in Pittsburgh, PA -- including an August 8th show at Union Pool in Brooklyn, NY. A current itinerary is below.
Kasher and band are known for engaging live shows, balancing his irreverent wit and charm against a back drop of songs that range from somber beauty to raucous revelry. He pulls from the new and amazing No Resolution as well as his previous solo albums, The Game of Monogamy and Adult Film. There's often a few tunes he wrote for his other bands, The Good Life and Cursive, woven into the mix as well!
