About Skidmore Fountain
Think ELO and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Think Flaming Lips and Can. Think Terry Riley and Talking Heads. Channeling these musical influences, New York City based indie rock band Skidmore Fountain is a bit on the unconventional side with five-string electric cello (its fifth string acts as bass), guitar, drums, and vocals making up the group. Skidmore brings the recording studio to the stage, with live string arrangements and ambient soundscapes looping through an Echoplex, vocals intensified through analog delay pedals, and orchestrated guitar lines all sitting atop pounding old school R&B and dub rhythms.
