You’ve heard the phrase, ‘Don’t Mess With Texas’? Well, Garrett T. Capps likes to mess with Texas. As he describes himself, he is “San Antonio’s resident cosmic country gonzo honky tonk weirdo freak.” Garrett T. Capps and his band NASA Country come from a long line of Texans adding their own spin to country tradition.
On last year’s ‘People Are Beautiful’, the San Antonio native and his band mix twang with synthesizers and a krautrock pulse, but what really sets it apart is Capps’s sensibility. He sings about politics, paranoia, and the darkness of our times, but it’s all lightened because he’s a funny and positive dude. If you’re going to kick out the jams on cosmic country, it helps if you’re as cosmically, wonderfully weird as Capps.
