Watch: Bumper Cars by Trapper Schoepp
We are happy to share with you the new video from Milwaukee, WI-based indie singer-songwriter Trapper Schoepp called “Bumper Cars,” which will appear on the upcoming release Bay Beach Amusement Park (pre-order at iTunes, Xtra Mile), a six-song concept EP centered around the 125-year-old attraction located in Green Bay, WI on the shores of Lake Michigan. Produced by 18-year-old Minnesotan Eliot Skinner and recorded mostly live over a weekend at Pachyderm Studios, Bay Beach Amusement Park serves as Schoepp’s creative and wildly fun follow-up to Rangers & Valentines, an album Relix declared a “mini masterpiece” and named one of Billboard’s “Best of the Week.” Look for Bay Beach Amusement Park to become available on June 2nd.
The bumper cars were always one of my favorite amusement park rides, so this song propels me right into my childhood, and I was definitely singing along after the first listen-through. I’m still waiting to catch Schoepp live, but I urge you to get out and check out his live show if he’s in a city near you (tour dates listed below).
