The Body Rampant

The Body Rampant is the braintrust of 24-year-old Fortuna, CA resident J.M. Lopez, who lives a self-described life constructed in a "positive manner with the hopes that others will do the same." J.M. performs music that is intricate, abstract and chill-inducing. Most of the songs on his August EP Beast begin with gorgeous, classical piano lines before diving into jagged, art-rock. Beast was a compelling album because it featured skilled guitarwork and impassioned singing. On his November release the Framework EP, he takes a huge step forward thanks to the production work of Casey Bates. "Midwest Mistrust," features soaring vocalwork and a ragged, herky-jerky rhythm, while "Simply Don't Argue," is a should-be iPod staple and the kind of song to pass along to friends. Lopez' MO is the soft-loud, soft-loud dynamic, which is utilized most effectively on album closer "Artax Please." With seven songs released since August, The Body Rampant is most definitely a legit under-the-radar contender and a band to be taken seriously in the months to come.

I downloaded the Beast Ep a while ago, as it was a Free Music Friday download. It's pretty sick and definitely shows great potential.

I recently downloading the Framework Ep and really liked it.
I was kinda confused about the video at first because the music sounded like As Tall As Lions.
Now i realize its a video of them recording.

I don't really understand why you would do a studio video with another bands song over it...but I like the band name.
