Best band in New Orleans is not from New Orleans…


Caddywhompus popped onto the NOLA indie scene a year or two ago and immediately took the crown in my eyes among the local indie bands. Although certainly not pop in the normal sense, Caddywhompus, like Art Decade, plays chaotic but cohesive indie with undeniable pop sensibilities. How foolish of me to originally think Caddywhompus could have been birthed in New Orleans, however the group is Houston based. I’m a little too lazy to think of comparisons right now, and thankfully I can just steal the comparisons from the group’s myspace blog in a review from A Future in Noise in calling them akin to “…Animal Collective and No Age, in terms of neo-psychedelia and noise-rock power.” Check out “Absinthesizer”, “Untitled #7408” and “Fun Times at Whiskey Bay” which are all up for download on the aforementioned blog page. “Fun Times” is probably my favorite track. There myspace is located here.
