This one is for a Des Moines-based band just starting out called GoodcaT. They paint with a pretty big brush, so you’ll find all kinds of influences in their music: folk, rock, psych, ska, and chamber-pop chief among them. The bass line that opens the track is a dirty little funk groove, and that vibe carries throughout the song.
The video is a more stripped down visual style than the other Bales videos I’ve posted here, but no less exciting. Actually, I think capturing things live can be more exciting than having different setups. It’s all in the eye of the beholder I guess.
