    Brooklyn four-piece Chappo will issue their debut LP Moonwater on May 15 via Majordomo Records – an imprint of Shout! Factory that has released albums by The Airborne Toxic Event, The Von Bondies and Earlimart.

    Here is what you need to know about Chappo and Moonwater.

    Chappo's electric blend of psychedelic pop, and original, heart-pounding polyrhythmic harmonies help to express vivid lyrics of youthful angst. The music is bold and daring, and embraces the band's truest ambitions. From the first note, the new album hits the listener with a strong, energetic vibration that runs through the body like a live current.

    The album's inspiration also stems from a spiritual and tranquil place. Chappo learned sacred Native American stories and teachings after a chance encounter; therefore, the band created Moonwater to symbolize a conscious state of mind, and aims for the listener to be in the moment with their music. "We want our music to release the moon shaman within, for ourselves and the listener," says keyboardist Chris Olson.

    For the 11-song LP, the four escaped New York City for Sunhouse Studios in the serene landscape of Vermont.
