!mindparade is the experimental pop project of Bloomington, Indiana, native Alex Arnold. The project combines art-pop, psychedelia, math-rock, post punk, and other genres in explorations of song arc.
After spending his teen years digging into his dads collection of vintage prog greats such as Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd and Yes, and self-recording in his basement, Arnold went on to study music theory and earn a B.A. in Music Composition, focusing on avante-garde composition techniques, electronic music, and orchestral writing. !mindparades output is as diverse and kaleidoscopic as it’s influences. Arnold is constantly writing and producing at his home studio, resulting in albums that feature varied musical personnel and stylistic tendencies.
The project self-released it’s debut record Everything Is Happening LP in 2012, described by NUVO magazine as “an ambitious low-fi bedroom symphony marked by flourishing psychedelic arrangements and dreamy tunes that recall everything from Deerhunter to T. Rex to the Elephant 6 Collective”. The band went on to release the Hero EP (2013) and Dead Mystics (2015) via Tree Machine Records on limited-run tape cassettes and vinyl. Singles from Dead Mystics premiered on blogs such as Impose as the band embarked on several DIY tours in promotion of the record. In 2017, !mindparade released Aleatoric Phase LP on Detroit-based micro label Atonuv, which featured two 17 minute tracks of ambient, avant-garde synth explorations.
