lasso | grizzly prospector

"incredibly refreshing lo-fi country music out of Kalamazoo. layers of reverb and haunting vocals give this a psychedelic vibe that seems pretty hard to come across within such a streamlined genre." ongakubaka

"Lasso is the brainchild of Andy Catlin. this recording is very lo-fi, the songs are buried beneath mountains of fuzz and reverb; it sounds like something recorded through the wall of some backwards saloon, where spaghetti-western guitar licks and ragtime piano are right at place next to laptops and warped vocals. Catlin’s nasally singing voice is often obfuscated by an effects filter and the lo-fi touches, and weird ghostly sounds creep into the tracks without warning." mostly midwest

demos and outtakes from the unrealized "cycles".

"a wonderful collection of lo-fi, warm, intimate songs. imagine an old time miner stuck in a small shed during the harsh winter months in a run down gold mine long abandoned by all the other miners, writing songs of long lost loves & losses." victory rose

"I hesitate to call what I do folk music. traditional folk is very structured, and what I do is certainly not" parker yates~grizzly prospector

"debut treat and admittedly, a little on the soft side." parker yates~grizzly prospector

that's me, the grizzmibee!
