Additional details


In 2002, Seluah’s debut EP launched a mystery rife with ethereal melodies and dub rhythms, allotting them a singular trippy space in Louisville’s well documented music scene. Louisville Eccentric Observer hailed it as “one of the best records to ever come out
of Louisville” and Ear X-tacy called it “a psych-dub masterpiece.”

After brief stints supporting Rachel’s, Matt Pond PA and Shipping News, the band went dark for six years while continuing with their other bands (Rachel’s, Boom Bip and People Noise) before reuniting in September 2010.

In March 2011 Seluah again partnered with engineer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Young Widows, The Broken Spurs) at The Funeral Home to record Red Parole, an epic full length much broader in scope and instrumentation than their debut EP. This time out the band allotted two weeks to immerse themselves in the heavier songs resulting in a dark guitar-laden record with a massive bass and drum sound. The bulk of the record reflects an early ’70s mammoth guitar aesthetic, both fuzzed out and sweetly melodic, punctuated by mesmerizing vocals that glide over each track. Most of the material was performed when Seluah opened for TV On The Radio in fall 2011.


Louisville, KY's Karass uses live loops, chimey guitars, interstellar electronics, driving bass, pulsing synths, thunderous drums, and weepy cello to create sprawling soundscapes that drive forward towards an epic climax in a quirky, odd-metered fashion.
