The Heligoats are an indie folk band based out of Chicago and have quite the interesting history. In the year 2000 they began playing music under the name “The Heligoats” but soon formed into, Troubled Hubble. This exciting 4 piece would play 500 shows across North America in the next 5 years and sign to Lookout! Records just 6 months before the label folded. Troubled Hubble played their last show in 2005, but in 2015 announced a reunion was in the works. During this ten year hiatus Otepka was busy at work writing more music for The Heligoats, and gosh darn it, are we glad that he did. Otepka has the amazing ability to take the quirky, the strange, the weird, the zany and transform it into the most charming, beautiful, and elegant thing you’ve ever heard. It’s a natural ability that’ll make you fall in love at first listen. Some of our favorite things about Otepka are his story telling ability and monologues that accompany many of his songs. Think of the opening monologue to “At the Bottom of Everything” by Bright Eyes. You can witness this unique, artistic, detailed story telling in his NPR Tiny Desk Concert session (link below). He was the series’ 100th performer, and past artists have included Wilco, Youth Lagoon, Kacey Musgraves, and Tom Jones. April 15, 2016 will see the release of yet another lyrically dense, sonic and superbly produced batch of songs when the new album, “Back to the Lake,” emerges from Greyday Records. See the full band on tour through the year, starting with a three week east coast trip this spring, April 13 – May 2nd.
