New Album from Grood
This Must be the Band is taking a break, but they have not stopped making music. The two leaders of the band, husband/wife duo Charlie Otto and Kasey Foster, released an album of original tunes under the moniker “Grood” in March 2016 to surprising acclaim. Since 2009 they have been building a vibrant following of fans and performers, and this recent album is one in a long line of inspired works they have produced. Links to the audio below:
Besides completing their recent 6 song EP, the band made several music videos that showcase Foster’s amazing stage antics, one of which is linked below:
Perhaps most in line with This Must be the Band’s claim to fame, Grood still performs elaborate and theatrical live shows full of brazen musical performances, set design and cotumes, and energetic crowd participation. Once a year, they perform the ACTual Show, admittedly inspired by Byrne’s ”Stop Making Sense.” Below is a teaser of past years, the next one is slated for November 2016.
