men

“Drift is the seventh full-length by NYC rock polymaths The Men, and it marks their 10th anniversary as a band. The Men’s last album, the self-released Devil Music, was the sound of a band who had been through hell hitting reset and looking to their roots to rediscover themselves. On Drift, The Men return to their longtime label Sacred Bones Records and explore the openness that Devil Music helped them find.”Source

Throttle Elevator Music feat. Kamasi Washington – Flux and Soldier (2017)

throttle

“Here’s “Flux and Soldier” … from the awesome fucking record “Throttle Elevator Music – Retrorespective” – This is an awesome album from what has evolved into ‘Kamasi Washington’s Punk Rock band’ – from the driving force behind much of Wide Hive Records (the Gregory Howe and Matt Montgomery powerhouse that is behind “Dissent” “Variable Unit” “Neomythics” and countless other projects, comes a hybrid almost too good to be true. Take the best parts of punk and jazz, cut the fat off, simmer for 20 minutes and then fry with a blow torch till golden brown. You are going to love this record!”

“Sunwatchers are a New York-based ensemble (featuring current & former members of NYMPH, Dark Meat, Chris Forsyth’s Solar Motel Band & Arthur Doyle’s New Quiet Screamers) that blur the lines between avant-jazz, punk, psychedelia, Ethio-jazz and desert blues, creating joyous, chaotic, mystical elegies to modern sound. Their eponymous 2016 album was released on Castle Face Records in 2016, and the band will release their Trouble In Mind debut, “II” on February 2nd, 2018.”Source
