The music of Cincinnati foursome SHADOWRAPTR doesn’t follow any blueprint … unless Salvador Dali ever made a freaky blueprint at some point in his career. The group’s songs are constantly in flux, shape-shifting minute by minute and defying any and all easy categorization. SHADOWRAPTR scored the “Best New Artist” trophy at the 2011 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards and have released two albums of their winding, unpredictable songs, including this year’s Love a Good Mystery, an even broader patchwork of sounds that includes numerous guest musicians adding horns, strings and woodwinds.
