some of its pop roots is Ann Arbor's
Getaway Cruiser, currently recording
its major-label debut on Sony 550
Music with a scheduled spring
release. Dan Carroll, drummer for
Getaway Cruiser, said the band draws
heavily from pop, as well as hip-hop,
blues and jazz. "Getaway Cruiser is
really a meeting place of all of the
band member's different influences,"
said Carroll, and the resulting sound
is sample-heavy pop with drum
loops, dance beats and hip-hop-
Getaway Cruiser is one Ann Arbor
band that has potential success
nationwide, but members still consid-
er Ann Arbor their home base and
will play a homecoming show Nov.
21 at the Blind Pig. "The good thing
about Ann Arbor right now is that a
lot of people are into experimenting,"
said Carroll, "and people are taking
their knowledge of music to create
Butterfly, one local band with a
very dance-oriented sound, is also
trying to create something new with
its "deep-dub disco," as guitarist and
lead vocalist Niel Dixon Smith
called it. "We do a lot of heavy stuff
lyrically, but we like to put it in a
context of danceable music," said
Dixon Smith. Drawing from disco,
dancehall reggae and house music,
Butterfly's sound is distinctive and
While the sounds of these Ann
Arbor bands are vastly different,
Dixon Smith believes they all share a
common approach to making music.
"When Butterfly plays, there's a spir-
itual connection to it, which 1 think
bands like Transmission, Morsel and
Poignant Plecostomus have too," said
These local bands have estab-
lished a very faithful fan base among
those who have been exposed to
their music, but many students have
yet to discover all that's going on
with music in Ann Arbor. "The great
thing about Ann Arbor right now is
that there are so many musicians
who are taking their music serious-
ly," said Hitsky.
Students and residents don't have
to venture far to find a rich and
diverse music scene. Maybe it is
only a matter of time before wider
segments of the student population
catch on to the experimental and
eclectic music being created by
musicians right here in Ann Arbor.
