Discover America is the most recent project of musical chameleon Chris Staples. After several other musical endeavors, he's back with a batch of quirky, hip, retro, upbeat tunes on his debut album, "Psycholgy." It's full of carnival-esque melodies and some distant lo-fi hip hop beats with loads of quirky guitar lines and walking bass. "Psychology" explores the human psyche from an objective point of view.

Themes include the afterlife, the biology of human love, childhood, faking hipness, commanding females, social difficulty, and the relationship between faith/doubt.
