Charleston, South Carolina’s Stop Light Observations is the revolutionary four-member band whose rapidly increasing fan base has found them breaking the record for most consecutive sellouts at The Music Farm and landing coveted slots at Bonnaroo and Firefly Music Festival. Toogoodoo follows their much-praised debut album, Radiation, and continues the band’s signature expression—fusing the best of arena rock with the hypnotically charged undertones of hip-hop and folk. Recorded live at Toogoodoo Bluff, a 1700’s plantation in the Low Country of South Carolina, the album expresses pain, joy, a longing for happiness and the primal urge for fulfillment during a time of increasing disillusionment with the material world.
