Mammal Dap and Paper Morning return to Happy Dog at the Euclid Tavern in Cleveland on Friday, September 1st!
Show at 9PM
Mammal Dap is a Northampton, Massachusetts-based electronic outfit, comprised of Killian Karlsson (guitar), Zack Cross (synths), Reed Sutherland (bass, synth bass), and Colin Jalbert (drums, samples). Together they deftly weave hypnotic beats with pumping bass, lush pads and soaring hooks. Balancing a deep love of nostalgic tones with a digital-age sensibility, their sound evokes the aesthetics of Tycho, Flying Lotus, and Bonobo. Their energized live performances and rigorous touring have led them to share the stage with acclaimed acts including The Motet, The Nth Power, Tauk, and Marco Benevento.
Midwest mysteries abound with Paper Morning's art-damaged take on the refrains of classic rock. Trippy collaborators in their youth, these Cleveland natives began hashing it out in high school, spreading soulful poetics and towering instrumentation from their basement to Lake Erie. Their debut EP, Pixelated, surfaced earlier this year.
