New Tumbleweed Stampede Record

Tumbleweed Stampede, including WUOG alum Ben Papillon and Programming Director Eli Gaultney, recently released their album Guts, a mature full-length that showcases rich instrumental sequences (including jazzy horn sequences and bluesy guitar licks).  "Lost Boys," off of Guts, is a dancey, up-tempo number that sounds like one of Vampire Weekend's breezy Afro-pop tracks.  The guys filmed a video for "Lost Boys" that has a little bit of something for everyone: elderly people playing instruments, penguins, and what looks like a cult initiation. Do I have you hooked yet?
