I was looking up some things in the forums, and also some of the test sites for musicians, so I first stumbled upon Vulfpeck (“Mit Peck”, like they called their first album) here on the German-speaking Bonedo site. And wow, indeed their bass player Joe Dart really is “Beastly” (the opening track of their first album “Mit Peck”)!
Here’s one track from their latest album “The beautiful game” – this one is called “Aunt Leslie”:
And here’s another one, called “Dean Town”:
But if you want to see (and hear) Joe, look at this:
If you want to hear more, then almost everything is available on Youtube – just look at their website for more information. If you want to buy something, they’re on bandcamp as well; two of their tracks (including the quite impressive “Beastly”) are even available as multitrack records if you want to mix and/or play along yourself – cool! Also look on their Youtube channel which has some quite funny and interesting things as well.
This is some very professionally played 60s and 70s soul & funk, and these guys groove like hell, tho they weren’t even born yet during the time of their musical style. So if Snarky Puppy is a bit too demanding, maybe this is easier to digest (and to dance to; can hardly keep my feet still when listening to this).
Meanwhile, I’m practising playing my bass ( a picture of which has been in my last blog post). And I’m also learning some cool new (and free and open source) stuff, like for instance rakarrack. Having a wonderful time.
Thanks for reading.
