The Soup Boys
The debut album by songwriting duo The Soup Boys, "Plague Rock" combines psychedelic rock, jazz, and folk to create a unique album. Recorded in Theo's garage over the course of 2017 and 2018, it marks Theo's first full-length traditionally recorded album.
Theo's contributions to the album are numerous. He recorded and mixed the entire album, in addition to playing many instruments. He performed all of the drums on the album and almost all of the bass, plus contributed electric guitar, piano, organ, keyboard, vocals, and percussion. He also did the digital coloring for the artwork and manages the social media pages for the group.
Theo also designed and created the cassette tapes for the album. Click here to purchase!
Captain Mick is Theo's electronic music project that he pursues when not working on material for The Soup Boys. This album is a fusion of vaporwave and trip-hop, taking the slowed down sludginess of the former and combining it with the drum breaks and basslines of the latter.
A Deluxe Edition was released by Illuminated Paths, containing four new tracks and a remix by Matty A.
This album takes samples from many sources and combines them into cohesive tracks, channeling funk, soul, and R&B. Theo also performs on the album, having recorded drums, bass, and keyboards on select tracks.
Sweetgum is the solo project of Kevin Austin, the second member of The Soup Boys. Theo contributed bass on the tracks Chlorine, Bad Boy Criminal, Very Tall Buildings, and Jovial Exterior. Theo also performs bass and backup vocals in the live band.
