Voodoo Boogaloo are a weird couple.
Currently residing in Canyon Lake, Stephanie Cardona and Logan Woodyard have been washing South Texas audiences in their weirdo trip hop waves since the release of their first record Yawny. Yelly. Glowy. Floaty, which they debuted back in March of 2014. The release was followed by a 10 week east coast tour that they say helped bring an uninhibited approach to their songwriting process — which is interesting, considering how free-form and experimental their sound already was.
A slot at Maverick Music Festival later, plus a healthy show schedule performing between Austin and San Antonio, the duo is back with a new album entitled Get In There, which, while it contains echoes of their first record, represents a one further into the cosmic, incense smoke-filled space the group explores with each performance. The hippie vibe feels familiar, but the sound is definitely new, from Woodyard’s trap-like musical arrangements and cartoon monster-sounding raps to Cardona’s breathy, lounge singer vocals.
