Catch me Catatonic is Soul-Punk. It started around a glass table. Some of us had been friends for years, and some of us had only just met, but we were immediately connected by our passion for music. We come from different places and pull our musical inspirations from even more places, but we contribute equally to the creation of every song we play, and it’s been magic from day one.

So when I was living in Lakewood, CO and I was beginning to write what would end up being Burnt Toast Cosmonaut’s self-titled album. I was getting a lot of my first shows in Colorado even though they were just acoustic gigs I was taking a lot of pride in what I was I doing. At this time I was working at this nursing home because at the time I was a CNA, which in and of itself was incredibly rewarding. But any who one day this just super cute mousy girl Shelbe started working with us.
I basically just make music as a way to express something that’s not really that easy to say. I record and produce everything myself as well, so it’s a pretty personal thing for me. Expression is the key: If I don’t have anything I feel I need to say, I usually don’t have a song to write.
This week’s featured artist is the Denver based band Turvy Organ. They declare themselves being mostly influenced by Conor Oberst and the Bright Eyes. But it is undeniable, that their roots go back to the British Indie-Pop of the 80s. Bands like Echo & the Bunnymen, Edwyn Collins’ Scritti Politti and the Pastells come to mind quickly.
We are proud to feature the amazing Matthew Rygol aka FunkStatik as our 19th artist of the week.
