Krisp Talks Nomenclature and Its New Record on Sweat Records In-House Label, Sutro

What do "Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, Chuck Norris, The Little Prince" have in common?

They're all awesome dancers. And they all serve as wellsprings of inspiration for Krisp, a four-member "indie/dance/chillwave/dance-rock" band -- Andres Ledesma, Jason Mavila, Alex Lopez, and Charlie Woods -- that's been bringing whimsical party tuneage to the 305 scene since early 2011.

Tonight, the quartet will be throwing a release party at Churchill's Pub for its new, limited-edition, 400-copy seven-inch "Will You Tell Me"/"Captain Hook" single on Sweat Records' in-house label, Sutro.

So we here at Crossfade chatted up the Krisp crew about nomenclature, genre tags, and fantasy live music experiences.
