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.

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!”
