Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery

Indianapolis, IN

After independently booking and playing over 800 shows in 40 states, Joshua Powell got good and tired of folk music. Settling in the central city of Indianapolis in 2016 prompted a restructuring of his band, the adoption of an old cat and the processing of the geo-spiritual journeys of his nomadic bildungsroman. Powell emerged this year from a haze of smoke and paper-mache monster masks with the expansive new LP, “PSYCHO/TROPIC." This new dreamy freeform psychedelic rock ‘n roll is a hallucinatory time capsule, matched with nuanced, surreal lyrics. Enlivening their kaleidoscopic record with a live show that’s equal parts dive bar grit rock fury and poetic ethereal joy, Powell and his band are a groovy, metaphor-rich force with which to be reckoned, forever and ever, world without end.
