Nestled in their Pilsen apartment, CHIRP's Eddie Sayago met up with roommates and four-piece, Toupee. Toupee underscored how trust impacts its musicality, declared their nocturnal & impulsive tendencies, and reflected on cataloging life's experiences in their timeline of injuries.
Toupee released its sophomore LP, Leg Toucher, on Moniker Records, on July 7. Toupee will be on tour in the NE and will be back in the great Midwest on August 4 for a show at the The Bishop in Bloomington, IN.
CHIRP's Katie Owens took a trip down to Pilsen to meet Chicago's mathy indie-pop reps, Oshwa. Before heading off on a month-long tour, the band took a moment to talk about the origins of their name, how living in Pilsen affects their sound, and the power of Reddit. Their debut full-length album, Chamomille Crush, came out August 8th, 2013, via Naked Ally Records.
