How come I haven’t mentioned Vulfpeck before? Such an interesting band – their public personas, their branding, their music. Everyone in the band plays 3 instruments, except Joe Dart, their bass player, because… he’s got enough to do. Here’s Dean Town, my favorite track of theirs, written by Woody Goss, and an homage to Weather Report’s Teen Town:
Those 16th notes on the bass are hard. But it’s worth it to have all of Madison Square Garden sing along to your bass line:
This song is great for playing at top volume, especially the Band Camp version which doesn’t have super annoying blasts of white noise, like on Spotify. (I only just now discovered that! And it reminds me I should pay these people money.)
Time for some black metal! Come for the hilarious name, stay for the crushing sense of doom and horror, and the amazing guitar tone. This would make a great soundtrack to something I don’t want to look at.
