-Punk. Swing. Ragtime. Southern jazz. Surf. Van Goat is a band to which you could apply many labels, but none would quite prepare you for what you’re about to hear.

-Agouti is a psychedelic rock band that surfaced from songwriter and producer Carmen Caruso after a trip to Costa Rica’s cloud forests. Escaping from chronic fatigue and dysfunctional routine, she ruminated on what to do next. Caruso realized many of her musical facets - early experiences in choir, infatuation with 60s and 70s rock, forays into building new instruments, and making experimental music - all oscillated around psychedelic rock.
When Caruso returned home to San Francisco, she started down a path to produce her own brand of psychedelic music. She created a recording studio in her basement, gutting the entire room and rebuilding it into a soundproof space. She fixed up a 70s bass amp, a 4-track reel-to-reel, and a vintage mixer. Finally, she began writing a new set of songs. The end results, "Summertime" and "Chameleon", have been featured in The Bay Bridged, Deli Magazine, and included in KQED's Mixtape of up-and-coming psychedelic bands.
