Karma Vision used to be the spastic side project of Mammoth Life co-vocalist Bobby Sauder, allowing him to sing his own songs instead of adhering to Mammoth Life's "spaghetti Western on acid" aesthetic. Now that Mammoth Life has pared down its sound and its membership, Karma Vision is free to pound the pavement full time with touring, recording and exploring the potential illustrated by its most recent EP, Actor John Goodman.

Dopey bass lines, wonky keyboards and alto sax parts make cameos in the band's sound, which incorporates elements of freak folk and Western music in the irresistible melodies. It's some of the most intriguing music that Lawrence has to offer right now. The Replay welcomes the band back after a short jaunt around the Midwest.
