It’s no secret that a robust choral accompaniment has the ability to fill out any band’s song with some vocal heat. It’s just that few bands actually make it happen. Six-piece indie garage rock outfit The Go! Team recognized the virtue of recording with an in-studio choir and applied it to its latest album SEMICIRCLE, released earlier this year.

The Go! Team recorded the album in Detroit, bringing aboard the Detroit Youth Choir as part of band leader Ian Parton’s vision for a soulful composition authenticated by live vocals raised in Motown. For a taste, listen to the choir’s most prominent vocal contributions atop a boisterous horn section on the track “Mayday.”

If you’re itching for a late week roadtrip to the city, the band is set to play alongside the Detroit Youth Choir on Thursday, April 5, at El Club (4114 Vernor Hwy, Detroit). It’s internationally acclaimed live music flavored with some of Detroit’s most promising vocal talent. Go!

Thursday, April 5

DuPont’s Floodplains Flows Onward

Water can be purifying, it can clean and soothe and nourish. It can also be something so formidable as to wear its way through soil and rock. Fittingly, then, Chris DuPont has titled his forthcoming album Floodplains, evoking a subtle but potent force of nature where a river mimics the unpredictable bends of life, depositing
