Vocal Suspects Get High On the Radio

Stopping by to open our 4/20 dedication show, “Sweet Baby Lou Gets High” were local Amherst acapella-ers The Vocal Suspects. Made up of 17 UMass students (for full list see their website link below), The Vocal Suspects are UMass’ oldest co-ed acapella group (in years, not in age) and their interests include “charity work, recording, singing, and acting ridiculous” some of which they decided to showcase in the WMUA studio.

Armed with their arsenal of pitch perfect voices, The Suspects dropped a four song set complete with vocal stylings (both high and low) on acapella renditions of songs like 30 Seconds to Mars’ “Kings and Queens,” Billy Joel’s “And So it Goes…” and a triumphant finale rendition of the perennial stoner favorite “The Circle of Life.”

From the Vault IX

A man in the wild of his heart

This installment in the illustrious From the Vault series goes all the way back to early February of this year, back when Sweet Baby Lou himself was busy descending into madness. Along with headlining act Time & Place we had returning poet laureate of the Lou, Shane T. Foster.

There he contributed some truly mind-bending poems that may in fact cause madness, however since madness is encouraged here at Sweet Baby Lou we implore you to open your mind and enjoy.
